ICONIC ALBUM ARTWORK
Reagan High School students were split into small groups to research the artistic and cultural significance of 5 iconic album covers from the 1960’s - 1990’s. Each group presented their research and own perspectives of their album to their fellow classmates, explaining what their album cover would look like if it came out today. Students were then able to meet with local artists to present their artistic vision for a modern day interpretation of their iconic album covers. These local artists brought those ideas to life and all artwork will be up for auction online from May 23rd - May 29th.
Albums we worked with this year:
*Destiny’s Child, The Writing’s on the Wall
*No Doubt, Tragic Kingdom
*Run DMC, Run DMC
*The Beatles, Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band
*A Tribe Called Quest, People’s Instinctive Travels and the Path of Rhythm
LIMITED EDITION T-SHIRTS
Reagan High School students discussed and shared what they learned during the school year. We channeled those thoughts into ideas for a t-shirt design, the goal being to create something visually appealing that encompassed not only our mission, but each student’s unique perspective on what it means to be part of the Attendance Records community. After a contest, three students designs were chosen to be screenprinted as part of our limited edition t-shirt series.
Over an 8 week span, two of our Attendance Records teachers created and lead a workshop rooted in songwriting and creative writing to ultimately teach students at Anderson High School the art of zine making. Our students spent the weeks creating content for their zine through a number of activities that allowed them to exercise and explore their creativity, such as poem and song analysis; written re-creation pieces; experimentation with drum and beat machines; and the creation of original short stories, poems, and drawings. Our students chose to make the theme of their zine about memories and what it means to do what you love. They spent an incredible amount of time pouring over their pages, and we are very excited to share what they've created.
So pop in to our pop up! Help support arts in public schools! We look forward to seeing you all there.
