Print, Cut, Decorate, Repeat - Preparing for the Exhibition

By Jack and Barbara Clarke, CCF Donors and Rick Falco, President and Creative Director of Vision Project

Wednesday we worked all morning on the computer, reviewing the work they did during the field trip, cataloging pictures and choosing the best work to be showcased on each child’s poster. In class, Jack reviewed the most recent work they have done.

Today we finished the poster prints and each student designed a poster with 7 to 9, 5x7, prints of their best work. For some, this was a challenge because they had plenty of great shots!

We want each child to have roughly the same number of prints so we had to hunt a little for some.

The kids were excited to make their posters and enjoyed seeing their work in print as opposed to on the screen of the computer or projected on the wall. They decorated their posters with colored pencils and were quite creative.

Tonight we finished printing the 4X6 prints for their “portfolio,” which will be our gift to them, placed in photo scrapbooks. We also finished burning them a CD of all their work. Gelina is printing certificates for them as well.

Tomorrow is the big day; exhibition day!
