Big Class No. 3: The 504

15.00

Sixteen 3rd-graders at Batiste Cultural Academy in New Orleans wanted to make a book about their lives in New Orleans, and began by writing personal narratives. These pieces were given to local artists to illustrate. In the meantime, the students received a crash course on point-of-view photography from a local photographer, and brought disposable cameras back to their neighborhoods to capture on film some of elements of the experiences they wrote about. When their film was developed, they discussed their pictures and the ideas surrounding them with adults. All these elements- the personal narratives, illustrations, photographs, and transcriptions from their conversations- are collected in Big Class No. 3: The 504.
