Color with Kids

Fusion of photography and poetry - a day at a local nursery with 53 Fifth and Sixth graders armed with cameras!

We started with 3 photo assignments designed around compositional elements I use when taking photos - each student accumulated around 200 photos full of color.

The kids also wrote poetry inspired by their photographs.

At the end of the day, we pulled both together using PowerPoint (they all had it on their Netbooks) to create gorgeous mosaics.

If I could only show you the artwork they created - beautiful and insightful... I wish we had a week together with our cameras instead of just a day!


  1. The mosaics are works of art in themselves! What a great project to do with kids.

  2. What a lovely way to spend time - encouraging the creativity in others to blossom! Kids are inspiring, aren't they? SO unrestrained and intuitive...
