Come view these fantastic portraits created by fourth grade students in Ms. Shereen Cader’s class at Warring Elementary School through a PPLD Big Read residency conducted in partnership with The Art Effect.

Inspired by Rachel Neumann’s collection “I Am Home”, students learned about the genre of memoir and wrote mini-memoirs expressing their thoughts and feelings about what “home” means to them.

Students then learned about crafting photographic portraits through the composition, angle, and lighting. Using the tools of memoir and photo portraiture, students took control of telling their own story of what “Home” means to them.
