This year ArtEsteem introduced the Digital Media class as an introduction to storytelling with media, featuring digital media tools and techniques. This class allows students to create short stories based on their interests and experiences. Students deliver the story in digital format, using text, graphics, audio, video, animation, and interactivity. Students learn about digital media applications, fundamentals, and issues relating to the use of digital media.
From stories created by the students, these are the project finals from ArtEsteem's 2013 program at Carl B. Munck Elementary School. A combination of stop motion and key framing animation techniques each story is highly creative, utilizing student vocals and artwork.
