Sag Harbor Elementary School Remote Impressions
With the online exhibition Remote Impressions, Sag Harbor Elementary School (SHES) 4th & 5th Grade students share the objects, images, and expressions of their ‘shelter-in-place’ experience.
Led by guest artist Clarence Sheppard and their classroom art teacher Gary Osborne, SHES students have been introduced to the tenets and techniques of digital photography and self-portrait, while visually reflecting their time during the COVID pandemic.
4th Grade Students learned the tenets of digital photography: composition, shadow, reflection, repetition, and angle. In past years, students explored these tenets by capturing images while on field trips to LongHouse Reserve, Pollock-Krasner House, or walks through Sag Harbor. This year their online course took them to places closer to home; revealing the creative potential in our everyday.
Similar to the 4th Grade, 5th Grade Students reacquainted themselves with the tenets of digital photography while being introduced to self-portrait. Experimenting with these techniques, their work spans from self-portrait to reflected landscapes; expanding on the past years’ annual portrait series.
An annual program, Clarence Sheppard has been leading a digital photography project with Sag Harbor Elementary students for the past 17 years. The project is made possible in part by the Reutershan Educational Trust, a privately funded art program created by Sag Harbor resident and architect Hobart “Hobbie” Betts.
Clarence Sheppard is a New York City native, who for over 30 years has been capturing images of people, places and events. He has worked as a photojournalist and an educator. His images have been featured in numerous galleries and publications.
