A place to see what is happening in Fine Arts at Rocky Mountain School for the Gifted and Creative

Here two middle school students pose for students who are inside primitive box cameras. Our Camera Obscura experiment is fascinating! We are varying the apertures(hole in the box), and testing lens and mirrors. Controlling the light is important, as is focal length. We have produced large, detailed but out of focus images, upside down and backward. We have also achieved a very sharp, in-focus projected image (upside down), but are frustrated that it is too tiny to draw from. Students believe that if we take the cameras outside, the strong sunlight will improve our results.
