Partners in Art

Enrichment & Access
Rye Country Day School

Partners in Art is a collaborative effort to facilitate an art exchange between students from RCDS and students from Haiti.  With the assistance from Haiti Lumiere de Demain (HLD), an organization dedicated to improving education in Haiti, students from both schools are asked to complete a photographic art project consisting of taking both self-portraits and photographs of their favorite food in various stages of production.  In order to facilitate this program, digital cameras were donated from RCDS and sent to Haiti so the students there could easily photograph and share their pictures. After the art projects are shared between the schools, the students Skype with one another allowing them to not only see their own work on the walls of a school far away, but also to see the real faces behind the pictures.
