Light Painters Unite!

Hey photography teachers, have we got the project for you!

Matt Cautheron, Mike Skocko, and myself have put together Paint the World With Light: an international light painting extravaganza.

The idea is simple: wherever you and your students are, use light painting to tell a story about where you live, or reveal something magical about where you live. We'll compile your images from as many communities from around the world as we receive.


The final product will be a web gallery of student work and a book that you'll be able to order, with proceeds going towards an yet to be determined good cause.


Check out our project website here: Paint the World With Light
Meet the Challenge on The Student Creative
Join the Art Education 2.0 group and the Asia Region group (if you're on that side of the world, or just so inclined).

Students are also welcome to join the conversation at the Digital Art Education Ning, at Matt's Lightpainting group there.

    I am starting a digital photography after school course with my 4th-6th graders. I'd love to participate, but it looked like the collaboration was meant for secondary level students and teachers only. If you are willing to have us, we are willing to participate. Is there a deadline?

    Terrific Theresa! Can't wait to see what your students will contribute.

    Wonderlost- I learned that restricting projects doesn't make all that much sense. Teachers with a good vision and enthusiastic students should never be turned down!
