NURTUREart’s Education Program is pleased to present work from this year’s video art class at Juan Morel Campos, taught by Jaimie Warren. The celebration will take place in the Juan Morel Campos School Gallery, with a reception at 5PM and a screening at 5:30PM, followed by a Q&A with the student artists.
Inspired by her own practice, Jaimie led the students through the collaborative process of reimagining and recreating a popular film, The Nightmare on Elm Street.They incorporated creative and resourceful references to the original film, while using video techniques to create illusions. The students learned accessible methods for creating homemade props and costumes, which will be installed in the gallery for the celebration. Working collaboratively exposed the students to the multiple roles involved in movie making, and the benefits and challenges of working in a team.
Student Artists: Tinia Albert, Gisel Castelan, Joseph Diaz, Jessica Matias, Angel Montes, Evelyn Reyes, Kayla Gamble, and Gesifed Paucar
Special thanks to collaborating teachers: Deepak Ananthapadmanabha and Laura Pawson.
