Through the Eyes of a Child – Who Am Eye
August 12, 2016 - August 31, 2016
Through the Eyes of a Child – Who Am Eye was spearheaded by Katherine Irish, school counselor and professional artist, Mrs. Loretta Huerta, principal at Reginald Chavez and Doug Bellen, music instructor at Reginald Chavez Elementary. They received a grant from Horizons Grant, APS Foundation. Carr Imaging generously donated 50% of the professional printing costs of the photographs in the show. Katherine Irish curated the exhibit to be held at the Hispanic Cultural Center
This project was designed to celebrate our students’ vision of their culture, family and friendships. It was a continuation of last year’s photographic project, Eye Am, headed by Fernando Delgado. Students were taught principles of photography and the use of cameras as an art media and that photography and art is a viable career path. The idea of using photography as a visual arts form that can be expressive of our students, their community, culture and environment was stressed. Calling attention to the beauty and content of their photographs gave their ideas and effort importance. Students were asked to honor and reflect on their lives and photograph what they value and celebrate; their families , friends and neighborhoods. The students were also asked to write an essay about their photographs. We will celebrate and affirm our 2015-2016 5th graders creativity by exhibiting their photographs.
