Field Trips at Zeum

Music Video Field Trips:

Students produce music videos featuring their own original poetry, digitally-composed music, and coordinated dance routines, which they perform and film in our Music Production Lab.

Students draw upon their literacy skills to create spoken word poetry and math skills to arrange rhythm patterns. They also expand their technical knowledge using cutting-edge music composition tools. The result is a fusion between art and technology that introduces students to the production process.

Clay Animation Field Trips:

Students learn the basics of stop-motion animation through a process of storyboarding, designing their own clay characters, and producing a short animated film using multimedia tools.

The clay animation workshop develops literacy and math skills through storytelling and sequencing, and emphasizes creativity, communication, patience and cooperation.
