Design, Teaching

My sister was running an after school art program for grade-school childrenĀ and she approached me for an idea for her students. we went through the materials and time, and decided upon a collaborative poster: each student was given some letters to make. My sister photographed them, and I put them together into different layouts so the students could learn about effective layout.
