Artist in Education, a brief description
Robert Mulder has participated in artist in education programs since 1977 on a yearly basis. Most of these workshops have been participatory workshop engagements, .i.e. the artist became part of the school as an "in house resource" for visual, dramatic and especially new media arts related activities. All workshops are project driven, and have specific outcomes. This page contains descriptions about two of these projects.

In this project students will create an animated video movie using standard stop-frame animation techniques. Students will write a story, develop and construct the characters, animate the characters and develop a meaningful dialogue. Subsequently they will develop and create the sound effects and music that will form the soundtrack for the video.
Students will use stop-frame animation techniques, digital animation camera, digital synthesizers, word processors, copiers, text, audio effects, multi-track recording techniques. The end project is a video tape or DVD-R..

This project is intended for a whole class. (Grades 4-12)

New Media Arts: Time Capsule

 

 

A class of students (could be the whole school) will create a CD-ROM that reflects/captures one day in the life of that school, its inhabitants and extended community. Students (and participating staff in a whole school project) will develop a method to obtain pertinent information (such as pictures, news clippings, TV material, written commentary etc). After this 'script' is completed the appropriate material will be gathered/prepared by the students and recorded in a special authoring software program, which, when completed, is to be custom 'burned' on a CD-ROM. Students will use a digital camera, text processing software, image processing software, sound processing software, digital synthesizers, acoustic instruments, text, audio effects, multi-track recording techniques. The end project is CD-ROM for Windows.

This project can be realized as an enrichment class (15 individuals), a whole class, or with an entire school.
