I hope our New City School families are enjoying summer break and the lovely weather we've been having lately. I've been looking forward to sharing the work that the fifth grade photographers did this year.
Last year's photo postcard sale was a big hit and this year the fifth grade photo notecards looked great!
We were inspired by the talented contemporary etsy artist, Joaquima Casas, and her series of whimsical animal photographs. The fifth graders used small plastic animal toys to play with perspective, color, balance, line, and space.
I love these squirrel photos! It's amazing how much character the photographers were able to bring to out of these tiny toys.
Proceeds from the notecard sales went to the World Wildlife Fund.
