Culminating Assembly With Visiting Artist Godfrey Semwaiko
This week we saw the fabulous fruits of Godfrey Semwaiko’s residency efforts with elementary, middle and high school students. From engaged storytelling, story writing and storyboarding, grade 3, 4, and 5 were busy creating and illustrating stories that are all being combined into one digital ebook to soon be available for download and use by the AST community. Middle School and High School students edited, manipulated and masked original works of art digitally to be ready for animating 2D illustrations and High School students created video clips and stop-motion animation. Godfrey showed us his process working with students, the animation of illustrations and a sample of the final ebook under development. Thank you’s were exchanged by children’s voices and an exchange of artist works of art and special gifts between Godfrey and Anna Lee.
