4/6 and 4/13: Visiting Artists/Film Video: Jessica Castillo [[ & ]] 4/13 and 4/20: Visiting Artists/Visual Arts: Armando Martinez-Celis

4/6 and 4/13: Jessica Castillo

Photographer and sound artist Jessica Castillo joined us for the 2nd session of the pilot Film and Video class to introduce students to script treatments. Using Jamaica Kincaid texts (including "What I Have Been Doing Lately") as a starting point, students first learned how to adapt an existing text for film and then worked on crafting their own including the important points they learned from that process. Each student developed their own version of Kincaid's "What I Have Been Doing Lately" which will hopefully be adapted for film/video soon.

4/13 and 4/20: Armando Martinez-Celis

Graphic Designer Armando Martinez-Celis joined us as a Visual Arts visiting artist for a mapmaking workshop. Using large rolls of butcher paper, the students created maps of their own lives and each others' by mapping out daily locations as well as more special ones. This project stemmed from Armando's thesis project which was a self portrait in relation to his hometown of Ciudad Juarez, Mexico. Photos coming soon!
