When I was in New York last year I saw my first Ellen Gallagher images and was blown away. Needless to say when I saw they were part of the Joslyn's traveling show I KNEW that we would be doing a project inspired by her after school during Celebrating Creativity Art.
We started the night by watching the PBS Video Art21 about her.
The students then got to work. I was a lot of fun listening to them as they worked. They were really trying to add things to their images and take things from their images; like Ellen does. They were very selective in what images they used so they could "say something" with their images. It was a lot of fun and I am impressed with how they turned out.
