Project SMARTArt

Posted by mariamengel on July 21, 2011

At The Center for Media Literacy website, SMARTArt is reviewed.   SMARTArt is a government funded media literacy case study in elementary school media literacy and arts education.  As we often read, multiliteracy projects in the classroom are designed for secondary education.  This is an excellent source for reviewing some incredible efforts put forth at Leo Politi Elementary School in the field of media literacy and arts education.  Leo Politi is in Los Angeles, CA.

Check out the SmARTArt website to read more about their case study and read about the lessons and integrated activities that students participated in.  Videos of their successes are also posted.  This video was the winner of the 2004 animation festival H2ed in New York.  “Playing with Guns” is a 30-second animation short produced by kindergarten students at Leo Politi Elementary School as part of Project SMARTArt, during a workshop conducted by AnimAction, Inc.
