Love the final photo project my 8th graders made to represent Diversity at @The_School! #artsed #edchat

The 8th graders at The School at Columbia University engage in an amazing multi-month unit where they choose, research, and design a Social Action Project. Two of my favorite girls asked me to help them produce a mural to showcase the incredible diversity (and cuteness) of our school community. I sheparded them to every classroom (K-8) in the building and supervised their photo shoots. We had the kids pose with both “yearbook smiles” and goofy faces. After, the 8th graders chose the best images from their files and used iPhoto to crop and print 3″x3″ prints. They arranged them on a row of poster boards and placed a border declaring “We are One!” around the perimeter.
