Mindful Media (Grades 3-5)
February-June, 2019 | Half or full day
We explore the key concepts of media literacy; developing visual skills in interpreting specific roles mass media and popular culture plays in our lives. Our artworks spark conversations around voting, iconic images & messaging, character stereotypes in-school cliques and we question the social acceptance of cool and glamour.
In the studio: students will use printmaking techniques, drawing, and literacy to create their own, personalised urban setting, complete with the types of media overload that saturate our everyday landscape.
