SELF-PORTRAIT SHADOW BOXES
Inspired by artist Kehinde Wiley and JR, middle school students created shadow box portraits that represent their identity through use of photography and painting.
For a community based project, high school students painted portraits of public servants of the Pratt Institute community such as security guards, chefs and cafeteria employees. Students then chose public spaces in Brooklyn that they would showcase their paintings to honor those individuals.
