Students debate the color of #thedress

Ever since the end of February, “The Dress” has taken over the internet. People disagree on what color they see the dress as being. Some see black and blue, while others see white and gold. Photography teacher Caroline Hunt Epp’s A block photo class decided to take a closer look into why people are seeing different colors, as she used the opportunity to use the controversy to discuss the principle behind white balance and differences in color perception.

 

It was revealed online that the dress is indeed black and blue. The color of the dress depends on how your eyes compensate for color depending on the light. Credit: Courtney MacDougall for Manchester Essex Multimedia Online

Industrial Design Students Create 3D Prototypes For Midterm Exam

This year in art teacher Caroline Epp’s STEM and Industrial Design, students were asked to make a 3D prototype for a creative new item. Like past projects in Epp’s class, the students had to research building techniques before starting the blueprints of their projects. Each project had to include at least two principles and elements of design as well as following the design process. The STEM and Industrial Design class is a one semester class so these projects will act as one of their final grades for the course.
