我們誠摯地歡迎來自非洲坦尚尼亞訪問藝術家 Godfrey Semwaiko先生,他將從8月31日至9月21日在本校駐點進行藝術文化交流。Godfrey 先生是坦尚尼亞的視覺藝術家、書籍插畫與圖書設計家、動畫師、運動圖形設計師、電影製片人、電視廣播製作人。聯合國教科文組織也認可他的動畫保護工作。 本次參訪活動,他將與每一年級的學生合作,講故事、創作藝術,並製作有關環境故事的手工書,並製成可下載的電子書。

2005年他曾於國際間展示"非洲--我們的家園” 課程活動。這次來AST,也基於上次經驗製作AST自己的故事 “台中--我們的家”,講述我們在台灣環境中所熱愛的東西,以及我們如何保護它。 Godfrey將於下週與小學部學生們開始建立故事架構、角色設計、故事板和書籍設計。他也將指導國中部與高中部學生創作一個互動電子書,內含數位故事版面,配樂和動畫。

他也會參加學校這星期五的Back to School Night (親師見面會) 活動。所以,當您遇見他時,請一定要向他自我介紹,並在未來幾週內享受他帶來的精彩貢獻。
