One of my eighth grade students Erin H.’s photo “Exit” has been selected by Frank Goodyear (Assistant Curator of Photography at the National Portrait Gallery) for inclusion in VisArts‘ upcoming exhibition “How You See It.” Ninety-eight students from Maryland and DC submitted more than 160 photos, and Erin’s was one of only 20 that were chosen. Nice work, Erin!
“How You See It” is a juried exhibition of photography, including work by high-school and middle-school students in or around Washington.
Selected works will be printed and hung in the VisArts Portfolio Gallery from March 10 to May 23, 2009.
My students at CES learn photography and imaging skills as part of the school’s Technology Program. In addition to photographing , journaling, and producing the school yearbook, my 8th grade students are also publishing an online journal of writings and images.
