Thanks for sharing
I was really inspired by your project "Painting with light". Great results with stunning images.
Are you involved in any new challenges like this during 2013 ? I would like to know :) maybe our school could
Thanks for sharing!
Great idea and also great examples from Matt. Thanks.
Should have replied with this before, but info about the Student Creative has been posted here on the exchange.
It does. It also makes me want to just FLOAT away...
David, doesn't it make you want to click to see it larger? :D
A great place for students and teachers to keep the light painting flame a'blaze!
Nice! Thanks for posting that! ...neat to see it as one image.
Here is a little shot of the article David Gran wrote on our collaborative project for School Arts magazine...
Beautiful. Inspirational. Full of energy and perspective. I'm sure the students are all the more proud of the fact that their work benefited such a good cause as well. 5 stars from me easily.
Great job, Matt! Congratulations on both of your projects! Spectacular!
My kids were talking about that too, Jan. Not sure how it would work... but that's part of the creative fun!
Light painting is a permanent part of the optional curriculum in the Mac Lab now. As well Float! may be next year.
Great ... will look into having the students do the Float project, but with a lot of darkness in Alaska in the winter, the light painting would be cool. Maybe they could light paint and float/jump at the same time! :)
Thanks Jan! This year we're doing Float as our Student Creative challenge- but we did have a lot of fun with PTWWL, so who knows! I'd be up for a second round!
This was a wonderful project ... will there be a sequel, Part 2 with the Light Painting? If so, I would love for my students to participate! Loved the final product ... so well done... congrats!
Now Matt's done it. I'm going to have to submit an English/Language Arts, Writing and Grammar resource. (And that'll be the end of any friends I might have made here.)
Respect to all our fellow Light Painters and Float!-ers to come. :)
Sweet! Right back at you guys. And congrats as well to the 17 other teachers who participated!
Congrats to David and Mike on this. It really goes to show that we are stronger when we work together... you guys are an inspiration (no matter how many spaces after each period in a sentence)!
I really love the project-so neat that it was a collaborative experience!
Light painting can be a pretty exciting approach to expanding the photography expereince for students. Even more amazing was the idea of working with classrooms on a global scale, seeing the work of those students (like David mentioned), and knowing that the student's imagery was shared & viewed far beyond any classroom walls.
Can't wait for Float! to hit the world!
My students were so excited for this project- and it was so valuable for them to see how other schools approached the project differently.
Wow! Beautiful! I love that you had so many countries involved too. That's amazing!
Fantastic examples of painting with light. Many of the photographs are stunning. Thanks for sharing.
Just added Student-Generated Light Painting Tutorials for any who might be interested.
Neither my students nor I had ever attempted light painting but the kids in the Mac Lab embraced the project with a will. Here's a look at some of their startlingly beautiful imagery.
It was an honor to be invited to work with Matt and David on this project.
