Sand Painting / Painting (With Light Table)
I really liked that idea of using the light box as a way to help back-light the sand and paint in our moving images. I actually have worked on a light box table before when I was student teaching at Hermantown Middle School and found them to be extremely helpful and easy to use. Out of the two projects that we did in class I felt that the sand painting was much more effective with less of a mess to clean up afterward. It also was an easier medium to manipulate and move around on the light box than the paint was and also when mixing colors together didn't turn to a brown like the paint. If I am fortunate enough to be able to obtain a light box when I am teaching, I will probably perform a lesson that closely resembles the one that we did in class.
