From the TCT archives: Turn student art into a Catholic Schools Week fund-raising opportunity

During the fall, junior-high students studied digital photography and iPhoto editing on Apple laptop computers. They took photos at home, around our parish campus, and during a local field trip.

Each student chose his or her two best photos for printing on high-quality photographic paper, and the photos were matted.

We will display them during our Catholic Schools Week Art Show and auction them to the highest bidder. Proceeds will go to the school’s endowment fund.
