Wrap It Up! Youth video interviews embedded into murals
A few weeks ago, I was awarded a Donor Circle for the Arts grant to engaging middle school students in a community mural project in San Jose's Japantown. The project, Wrap It Up!, now has a website to document the project process: http://wrapitupmurals.weebly.com/ The project will result in student created video interviews with mural artists which will be hosted on Next Vista for Learning. The project will also invite students to create visual art to add to the mural site and spoken word and poetry recordings. All video and audio recordings will be incorporated into the mural project via QR codes. An earlier posting on the project concept is here.
