Service Learning

Students in Grandview Heights High School Art Teacher Katherine Kelsey's photography class found a unique way to combine their talent with service learning.  Students approached Cat Welfare with the offer to take photos of their adoptable animals for their website and also use the photos to produce cat-based artwork.  
Cat Welfare will use the art work to create gifts for their volunteers and potentially sell artwork and items at their fall 5k run to raise funds for the rescue.  Students first photographed the kitties using backdrops and some basic lighting techniques and then optimized these images in photoshop.  Advanced art students and Art Club members will use the images to create screenprints.  Cat Welfare can then create note cards with the kitties on them, stationary, matted art prints, etc.  All optimized image files will be given to Cat Welfare for use on their website as well as on social media to promote adoptions.
