21 Apr Altona Forest PSAs
Colin worked with a group of students from Altona Forest Public School to create a number of public service announcements. The Durham District School Board runs an Artist in Residence program where artists and teachers pair up to teach core curriculum through an art form. Colin’s role was to help the class interpret visual media by creating PSA’s on social issues. The students later had to write an opinion piece assigned by their teacher.
The concept of this particular project was to see if using a hands on approach to media interpretation would provide a deeper understanding of the topic therefore strengthening the written piece that followed. Carla paired up with a number of groups on the shoot days to help them realize their scripts. Here are some more of the pieces we came up with:
