The eighth graders of Cedar Park are exploring a unit on the American Civil War. The CPMS Art Literacy Program is expanding on this topic by studying the Civil War photographer, Mathew Brady. If you’ve seen a Civil War photo, it was probably done by Mathew Brady or one of his photographers.
Art Lit Volunteers will take a portrait of your student(s) in the style of Mathew Brady. Costumes are supplied by Art Lit. Volunteers are needed to help students choose costumes and assist students putting costumes on over their clothes.
Because Art Lit does not extend into high school, this is your middle schooler's last Art Lit lesson at BSD.
The remaining schedule for this week is:
Friday, May 11 (Ms. Pearson)
- Core 1 & 2 9:00-11:15am
- Core 3 & 4 11:15 - 1:30pm
Monday, May 14 (Ms. McKay)
- Core 1 & 2 9:00-11:30am
- Core 3 & 4 11:45- 1:15pm
Wednesday, May 16 (Ms. Parks)
- Core 1 & 2 9:00-11:00am
- Core 3 & 4 10:45-1:15pm
If your child DOES NOT want their portrait taken, they may opt-out. If your child needs extra time, email the Art Lit coordinators to set up a time when it is not hectic.
Boys, please wear dark pants (chino-type) or jeans. This also goes for girls planning to fight in the war.
