I've added our 2 high school photography courses to the new Mt. Everett Photo blog. Check it out!
With up to 17 hours of darkness per day, it's no wonder Danish people boast finding joy in the simple things as such an embedded component of their culture.
For this project, middle schoolers learned a little about Danish culture and the term "hygge"
Each piece of this group sculpture illustrates the students' own interpretation of what their own "hygge" looks like and the exhibition came together to portrait our own "light in the dark" for the senior citizen luncheon.
It's been a long time since I have posted any new lessons here. My section of Design had been replaced with a different class resulting in my lack of content for this design-focused site.
I will be reevaluating this page and posting new lessons that are more inclusive to my current classes. Stay tuned.
In the meantime, check out my latest School Arts article!
I have been teaching art and design at the middle and high school level since 2006 and learning about both for a lot longer.
