Students explored drawing and sculpture techniques to create detailed, intricately patterned shadow puppets with moveable limbs, inspired by aspects of their personality. Working collaboratively, they created a narrative around these shadow puppets inspired by folktales with morals. They animated their puppets, visualizing the narrative behind a shadow screen, using photography and video to capture their performances. They also composed music and added dialogue into this shadow puppet video narrative. The final exhibition includes the sculptural shadow puppets as well as the collaboratively created video, accompanied by the narrative and artist statements.

Our students develop mastery in using technology to further their learning, communicate with each other and teachers and to present and analyze their work. Each 8th grader created his or her own Portfolio Website showcasing the year's work and reflecting on his or her academic and personal growth.
