2015 - Picture the Moment

ArtLink 2014-2015 Theme Assignment: 

In this age of Instagram, Snapchat and selfies, countless photos are taken and downloaded 24/7. Everyone seems to love to visually document the details of their lives. We challenged our students to leave technology behind and take out their art supplies.

In their artwork, the students had to thoughtfully capture a specific moment to share. A moment that might include their families, classmates, friends or community members taking part in an activity that reveals a meaningful cultural value.
