Story shapes – EdMedia at work

JD_gestures
Drawing can be exhausting. After a couple of weeks working with our EdMedia participants, I’m feeling about the same as our little buddy JD here. Check out some of the other work generated from the EdMedia version of Grids and Gestures in this post.

It’s been 2 weeks since the last Going Visual (III) session, and I’m just now gathering my thoughts and posting the galleries up. I shared some reflections over on jasontoal.ca diving deeper into the connection between drawing and music making (more to follow), and will be sharing some of the work below.

Story shapes, grids and gestures: Visual activity at play

This activity generated some interesting drawings as can be seen in our flickr gallery. The response from the group was mixed, but in general all were able to use the “story shape” seen in the Vonnegut video as a structure for “the shape of their day”. Note the continuity of the sine curves in almost every drawing. Plenty of creativity and potential for developing this work, like in some cases the shape is represented as a map. What was most important for us was if, and how they were able to use this activity to move their own projects forward.

Today we are doing the Show and tell day with our EdMedia participants, and its great to see so many doodles and storyboards being posted. Looking forward a lively discussion!
