We are all very excited to welcome Justin Paris, professional photographer, as our Artist in Residence this month. Third grade will be working with Mr. Paris to learn about digital photography techniques such as framing your subject, camera use, and lighting techniques. Students are learning about Gabriele Galimberti’s photography series, Toy Stories and will be drawing inspiration from Galimberti’s work to create an installation that documents the toys of their generation and generation pasts. In preparation for our artist in residence coming to Ames the week of March 17–21 third grade is collecting information about toys. Please complete the following questions and bring back to art class the week of March 10th.
