Finally, it was up to the students themselves. They determined how they wanted to define light. From there, they sketched, researched, and planned how they wanted to show an image that went with their chosen interpretation.
I am super pleased with the students first artworks. I know that being asked to come up with an artwork from conception to completion is very hard for many of my students. But, as the year goes on, they will become more confident in their ability and their work, and it will become easy for them to go through the process as they grow as artists.
