Creative Project – Evelyn Gerber
Creative Projects (SU400) is designed for seniors who are self-motivated and wish to explore a project of personal interest in any academic subject area. Students are required to express interest to the guidance counselor, submit three teacher recommendations, and write an essay explaining the scope, depth, and outcome of the chosen semester-length project. A faculty committee then determines his or her acceptance or rejection into the class. A faculty proctor is selected to meet with the student once a week. Areas of choice could include but are not limited to: robotics, computer design, technology, consumer science, writing, business management, agriculture, fashion, journalism, etc. The only limit is the student’s desire and imagination!
Senior, Evelyn Gerber’s Creative Project consists of her producing videos using footage she films at different school-related events. Gerber said she enjoys the art of videography and capturing special moments and she hopes that through this project, students can look back and remember their high school experiences through the lens of her camera.
This was the inspiration for the name she gave the account where she posts her videos. Check out @throughevslens on Instagram and from time to time you’ll also see her videos on our social media channels. Now everyone can experience Hillcrest Academy life through Evelyn’s lens!
