NPHS Art Show Written Reflective Response/Ekphrastic Poem

Please go to the NPHS Art Show 2023 and look through the images.  You will be responding to the art in written form. Photograph the images you want to write about with your phone or you may borrow a digital camera to photograph them. 

Choose your 2 favorite photo images and then respond to these questions on this document. You may do a third one for extra credit.  Each reflection is worth 10 points (so an additional one would be up to 10 points extra credit).

This is a Word Version of the document.  When you click on this link, the Word Doc will download onto your computer.  Paste your images into the document.
