Student showcases photography

Orange High School sophomore Rebecca Abramovich had the opportunity to showcase her photography and discuss her art as part of “The Suitcase Project” fellowship sponsored by the Cleveland Print Room. Rebecca received the fellowship through her photography class at Cuyahoga Community College. Her family emigrated from Russia, and she chose her family’s heritage as the theme. Her photographs tell a story about their journey and their life here.

“What I learned from the fellowship was how to take a closer look at an image or the setup for a photo and noticed all the small details,” noted Rebecca. “I learned a new way of storytelling through my photos. The fellowship was very personal to me and let me share part of my family history and the stories of their life that they have passed on to me.

Storybooks inspire winter crafts

Moreland Hills Elementary School second-graders got into the winter spirit with engaging projects and activities as part of a virtual “wintersession.” Second-grade teachers Carolyn Newman, Angela Lovell and Jennifer Zimmerman each recorded a story and a step-by-step video explaining how to create art projects that went along with the winter-themed books. The videos were shared with the entire second grade, enabling all of the students to create scenes from “Red & Lulu” by Matt Tavares, a paper snowman for “Snowmen at Night” by Caralyn Buehner and six-sided snowflakes for “Snowman Bentley” by Jacqueline Briggs Martin with supplies they already had at home. Mrs. Zimmerman even showed the students how she captured and photographed snowflakes just like Snowman Bentley did. Classes for all Orange schools students resumed remotely on Jan. 4, 2021 with the hybrid option beginning Jan. 11, 2021.
