How can social media be successfully incorporated in an art classroom?
Approach: Delve into how social media, particularly Instagram and Pinterest, can be utilized as resources for artistic inspiration, spaces for critique and collaboration, and showcase art in a visual timeline/archive format.
Experts and collaborators:
– Sophia Buddenhagen, my high school art and Painting teacher
– Alexandra Robinson, my Drawing II professor
– Wendy Dooldeniya, Travis High School art and AP Photography teacher
– Gayle Allen, blogger, writer, entrepreneur
Format: The final format will be a comprehensive blog post detailing the information I have gathered. For the interviews, I’ll meet with Ms. Dooldeniya (and her students) and Alex in person. Since Ms. B is in Houston, I’ll interview her via email.
