2nd grade students were studying about their school community and how they were a part of this community. Students then interpreted the work of street artist JR. They scanned and analyzed how JR used large-scale photographs to express the people who live in those communities. Students took portrait photographs of other classmates. Just their eyes were blown up and placed through out the school adding their presence to the school.
