At yesterday’s faculty meeting The Arts Department at College Prep gave a fascinating presentation about ways in which they have collaborated this year. Collaboration has been an unofficial theme of this school year, not just in the arts, but across the disciplines. The intentionality behind the academic and artistic collaborations happening at College Prep ensures that these projects will continue, and that time and other resources will be carved out for teachers from different departments to share their expertise and create new opportunities for our students.
The Arts Department collaborated on three big projects this year that involved teachers and students from our four arts disciplines: dance, drama, music, and visual arts.
The easiest one to share with you is the music video below. The original composition is by our instrumental music teacher Kurt Patzner. The Jazz Combo recorded it, while Intermediate Art students created artwork for the video and Digital Video & Production students shot the video and then edited it into the entertaining piece that follows.
