January 26, 2021 – March 8, 2021, virtual exhibition
Artistic Expression is one of the key skill areas that all Parker students explore and master. The work included in this exhibit was created by 11th and 12th grade students during a semester long digital photography course. The course gave students the opportunity to practice various digital photography techniques as well as explore questions including: “How has the invention of photography changed the way we see, communicate, share information, and make art?” and “How can we use photography to effectively communicate our own ideas, beliefs, and opinions?”
Parker is a charter public school open to all residents of Massachusetts, serving four hundred students in grades 7-12. Parker’s interdisciplinary academic program focuses on helping students learn to use their minds well, develop strong habits of learning, and build a caring school community characterized by trust and decency. Students are at the center of their learning, teachers act as coaches and guides to deeper learning; parents and family members are key collaborators in student success. Parker is accessible by public transportation from Fitchburg and Leominster; admission is by a random lottery.
