Last week I took my 8th grade students down to the auditorium, turned off the house lights and let them experiment with light painting. They had a blast and they came up with some really fun images. I basically took them through this tutorial and demonstrated how to create a light painting with a point and shoot camera. I set up a station for each table of four students throughout the auditorium and let them have at it. Next time I’d like to try to experiment with different kinds of light sources like glow sticks, colored light etc. Some students brought colored flashlights with them which worked out great. I can’t wait to try it again!
