Using video to reflect on process.

Lately the art teachers at my school have been asking our students to create video reflections. Most students use iMovie, some use other programs. I have found these reflections to be very revealing...it provides another outlet for the less verbal student to express themselves and values process over product. At the end of the first term of Senior Studio here's what seniors have to say.

To see photo students talking about finished work click HERE and to see one of the best video reflections ever made in our department click HERE.
