Invoking The Imagination: From Blue To Red

with Samantha Whelan Kotkas
  Subtitles available in English French

In this video, teaching artist Samantha Whelan Kotkas discusses the From Blue to Red project, in which Grade 10 to 12 students participated as story writers, composers, illustrators, documenters, or scientists. Co-produced with Ross McIntyre, this project helped students articulate their ideas and develop a personal relationship to the arts.

This video is part of a four-part series on invoking the imagination through the arts for students of all ages. In this series, Samantha shares different ways music educators can invoke the imagination of others, create an environment that supports the discovery of individual artistic voice, and help people articulate their ideas in and through an art form like music.
