The creative jewel of Minnesota…
Media faculty chair Nancy Norwood wonderfully integrated her eager participants from The Perpich Center for Arts Education (PCAE) into the dynamic fabric of Project Identity as PI visited the Twin Cities for this weeks residency. A mixture of both Media and Visual Art students continued the collaboration and effortlessly commanded the technology and drawing process that PI is utilizing for the animation component. These PCAE students submitted some of the most conceptual and visually dynamic videos for the collaboration. They brought the same focus to the drawing table too, commanding the rotoscoping process and producing hundreds of images.
PCAE is a dynamic agency of the State of Minnesota, and a unique state-of-the-art organization of national stature representing Minnesota’s dedication to excellent education. Perpich’s mission is to improve K–12 education for all Minnesota students and educators through innovative programs and partnerships centered in the arts.
The Arts High School (AHS) is an innovative, tuition-free public high school delivering a comprehensive education centered in the arts. Students can focus in either Dance, Literary Arts, Media Arts, Music, Theater and Visual Arts. Students also study English, Math, Science, Social Studies and World Languages. AHS integrates arts and academics to provide unique and powerful learning opportunities that stay with students throughout their lives. A special thanks to Nancy Norwood, Colleen Brennan and Karen Monson for their asssitance during PI’s visit to PCAE.
