Photo Story

September 13, 2016 - September 19, 2016

In all, this project should take around 3 hours. Students have had at least an hour to work on this in class.

Homework: Photo Submission

March 2, 2017 - March 9, 2017

Photo Story: My Personal Adventure

March 11, 2017 - March 20, 2017

Students are tasked with creating a narrative through photography. Using 5-6 photos which emphasize the elements and principles of design, the goal for this assignment is to tell a story through photography and reflection.

Rivers and Tides Screening - quote homework

March 20, 2017

Site Specific Sculpture

March 21, 2017 - March 31, 2017

Studying pioneering environmental artists who primarily work with land-based art, students in groups of 2 or 3, create their very own "earthwork" site specific sculptures. These pieces are documented either through photography, video, or time-lapse, then presented in to their peers in a class critique.

Scientific Illustration EQ

April 7, 2017 - Approx. April 16, 2017

Using techniques of inking and watercolour painting, students illustrate a portion of a marine organism native to Eleuthera's waters. Putting their creature portion together with 2 other students' works, a complete, fantastical creature is formed. Extension project is a wood transfer of these creatures on casuarina wood blocks.

New Perspectives

April 14, 2017 - April 28, 2017

Students have free rein to choose any medium to express a new perspective that they have gleaned through their semester at The Island School. This project has the highest weighting for the course, and is the cornerstone of the Environmental Art experience.
