Mrs. McArthur's photography class ended the term experimenting with Light Painting. Special light painting tools and techniques were used to create the images, with lots of student-led experimentation. The students were outstanding and really stepped out of their comfort zone to create these spirographs and portraits.

STEAM ACTIVITY: Color/Sound Synesthesia In Drawing Class
Students in Mrs. McArthur's drawing class learned about Color/Sound Synesthesia then followed it up with a drawing activity. This activity asked them to listen to their own music and imagine what they would see if they had color sound synesthesia. Color/sound synesthesia is when someone hears a sound and automatically sees a color; or, they read a certain word, and a specific hue enters their mind's eye. About 4 percent of Americans have color/sound synesthesia.
This activity asked students to listen to their own music and imagine what they would see if they had color sound synesthesia. They experimented with all the medium the class will cover in drawing, allowing them to interact with them prior to the specific unit.
"I am really proud that they dove into this assignment head first, with little prep!" - Mrs. McArthur said.
