Open to students in grades 5–7 (11–13 year olds), this multisession video production course invites students to create a collaborative work inspired by Wang Jianwei: Time Temple. Students will work together to create a short video as they develop digital production and editing competencies. As they storyboard, shoot, and edit, they will learn the research, visual, and verbal communication skills necessary to create visual narratives. The program will culminate with a film screening of the students’ work and reception for families.

Building on the Guggenheim’s popular Art After School programs for younger students, this course in video production offers older students an opportunity to continue building their artistic skills at the Guggenheim Museum. This course is developed in collaboration with Magic Box Productions, a media arts education nonprofit dedicated to bridging the "digital divide" by helping students develop critical 21st-century skills in media arts, technology, problem-solving, and cross-disciplinary thinking.

Teaching artist Alexis Raskin will facilitate the program. Raskin is an award-winning video artist whose work has been exhibited at MassMoca, Platform China, the Rotterdam Film Festival, and Gallery Korea. Alexis received a BFA from the Art Institute of Chicago and an MFA from the School of Visual Arts. Fluent in Mandarin, she was a teacher at Gong Yang University in Taiwan and has taught ESL for over 10 years.

$200 (includes family pass, materials, and snacks), $150 members.
