Teen CO•OP Video Projects

Our teens use video as a tool to tell stories. During our summer session we created short films about an artwork in the collection. The students recorded their initial reactions, read about historical context, and completed a series of small tasks: choose three words that describe the artwork; describe this to someone who can’t see; write a tagline for the artwork; tell a story about this artwork. These tasks became pieces that they could include in their storyboards. Some also created their own typography or imagery to incorporate into their video.
