Making Puns on Martin Parr
For this project, the kids were told to "change up" Martin Parr's photographs with a drawing. This was a 6th grade project. We did a trial run with random photographs that they chose online. Then, I provided them with numerous copies of Martin Parr's photographs to do their projects.
Who is Martin Parr?
Look him up at http://www.martinparr.com/
After we looked at Parr's work, I tried to talk about his style. I encouraged them to find their style. For the most part, the kids got the project. My deep thinkers accepted the challenge and got really creative.
