As the Faces of Westfield project continued we went from practice and informal interviews to setting up our first formal interviews.  The Westfield Senior Center hosted our first interview session with eight interviewees. Photography students arrived to take photos and setup formal portraits while Westfield Promise students interviewed the volunteer senior citizens.  

Our second interview session took place on the Westfield High School campus when Chief White Eagle arrived for his interview and photograph session.  


Student interviews are continuing into the beginning of May.  


Then we will be working on draft writing and illustrations in preparation for our final art show in June!   Link to Photos




Westfield Promise students on the Campus of Westfield State University


There are a series of photos from our visit to the campus of WSU for a library scavenger hunt and database research.  Students were also introduced to the new CURCA space at WSU (Center for Undergraduate Research and Creative Activities).  Students requested use of the space as part of our Art Show once it begins traveling around the City of Westfield.

The Westfield Promise class and the Pre-AP/AP art classes were joined by students from pottery, photography and technology to go on a sample art walk and to start previewing the project components.  We brought along samples from a recent WSU student interview and all of the teachers were able to share their particular component of the project.  

Afterwards, the staff got together and we were very much impressed with the excitement and interest of the students.  We offered areas for ideas and suggestions and some cool ideas are percolating for this project.  

Next step:  We are going to be sending out invitations to our prospective interviewees and setting up interview schedules.  We will also be scheduling a guest lecturer - Robert Floyd, to come and speak about photographic portraits for sometime in late March.  Beginning March 18th we are going to be clearing out a space in our school cafeteria (formerly the School Store) in order to setup a mock photography studio. 

Our technology teacher has also setup a QR code for cell phones to connect to a page on our website, which will both serve to advertise our project but will also be a location for the art show to be featured digitally.  Technology and marketing students will also be assisting with advertising components.

Room 117 is decorated with sample sample portraits from famous painters and photographers.  Students from Mrs. West's class and Mrs. Biancuzzo's class peruse the art gallery and make notes on the images that most capture their attention.  For some students this is their first visit to an art gallery.
