Imagining Creativity at Rio Vista

Karaina Perkins, Student author
Imagine, the follow up collaboration to Pandora's Box between DATA Digital Imaging and Rio Vista Elementary third graders is now in full motion!

On January 24th, 16 high school students visited RV to work with 32 excited and talented youngsters to read and develop sketches for this year's integrated arts and literacy project. On January 31st, PSUSD VPA Specialist Louisa Castrodale worked with the elementary students as they added color to the drawings. From there, Di students began scanning and re-creating the children's work with Photoshop in preparation for the digital books and video.

The story this year, Unicorns and Trash Cans, was written in response to this year's DigiCom theme by 3rd grader Karaina Perkins as part of a grade level story development challenge. Additional layers to this year's project will include a collaborative gallery exhibit with local artists, as well as an interactive book for the iPad.

We can only imagine what more is to come!
