Every now and then, a student will surprise me. My grade 9 art class is studying the Group of Seven, Tom Thomson and Emily Carr as part of their final task. They have some written work as well as a creative component to complete: one that is somehow inspired by or related to the work of the artists we are studying.
Dylan smiled when he told me that he woke up at 5:30, packed up his phone and the tripod he borrowed from class, and went down to the Red Rock Marina to capture the sunrise with time-lapse photography.
I was floored! He showed me the video this morning, and I told him he should upload it to YouTube so we could share it with our township (and the rest of the world!). Who knows, maybe it might be used to tempt a few people to make the trip to Red Rock! If you’d like to leave a message for Dylan, feel free to post a comment.
