Dr. Joseph Jaksy
Stacey T. created this portrait at Lantana Middle School in Florida and reflected on her experience:
What was it like to spend so much time looking at a a photograph and then making a portrait based on the photo?
To study a photo of someone than make art about them makes me feel as [though] I’m allowing their history to be told in art [and] that their thoughts and emotions show in the picture.
Write a caption for the portrait that you made. It can say something about the person or something about your feelings making the portrait.
“The doctor who risked his life for others.”
What did you like and dislike about the art experience?
I liked how this showed me a new way to create art that I wasn’t used too. I like the way that by light and dark you can create a photo even when it’s upside down.
What do you think you will remember about this experience? Why?
I’ll remember how there are different ways to create art and how Dr. Joseph saved many people even when it meant he would be killed.
