ASM4O Culture Symbol

What you see below are symbols that our grade 12 media arts students created in order to represent their cultural lives as teenagers. While the symbols are simple and direct, the time and thought that went into these is complex. To learn more, check out the student's individual blogs (Chey, Katelyn, Chey, and Angela).

ASM3O Photo + Lyric

Merry Christmas!
I have been slow at posting new work because the students have been keeping me busy with their assignments.
For this assignment, our grade 11 media arts students were asked to combine the lyrics from their favourite band with a photograph that they took. The challenges were to manipulate both the photos and lyrics in an artistic, subtle way. If you would like to see more examples, check out each student's blog.
PEACE! Miss G.

ASM3O/Grade 11 Media Arts Culture Jammers

Our grade 12 students were asked to choose a company of their choice and show a critique of that company's policies, work practices, morals, etc. These critiques are often referred to as "Culture Jammers" as found in magazines such as AdBusters. Coming up with and completing this assignment was harder than it looked! However, the students have started to develop the necessary critical thinking skills needed for college and university.

My Alter Ego

The first grade 12 Media Arts assignment has been for students to create a self portrait based on the idea of their alter ego.  Students described both in words and visually what their "other self" would be like.
The grade 11 students are working on their classical animations, bringing inanimate objects to life in a short film.  Keep posted for more.
