WHYY and the Philadelphia Museum of Art present Podcasting about Art: Recording Your Response
Back by popular demand! When we look at art, we make a connection with it. Learn to capture this rich experience by writing and producing a podcast about your own response to a work of art. In the first session, we will engage in guided looking, personal reflection, and small group discussion about works of art. Using these strategies, you will then focus individually on a work of your choice. This deep looking and thinking will provide content for your podcast. During the second session, hosted at WHYY, you will learn to employ audio storytelling skills as you turn your response into an engaging podcast. Using readily available technology, you will learn basic recording and sound editing techniques, as well as strategies to use these techniques in your classroom.
This is a two-part workshop, on two consecutive Saturdays. You must attend both days to receive professional development credit.
