Q: Cross-course collaboration: text and image -- any experience with this?

In a meeting Ari and I had today with Hugo about the Language of Art LC and the Intro to Art course collaboration, we discussed an interesting idea that Ari came up with:

What if one class wrote the text for something and the other class illustrated it?

In theory this sounds extremely interesting - and perhaps difficult to realize.  Does anyone have any Web 2.0 experience with this or something like it?

  1. There is always that wonderful cartooning program...what was it? Or: you could take photos of it and post the photos.

  2. It was Pixton:

    But taking photos of the illustrations would be the easiest.

  3. Do you mean Graphic Narrative?

  4. That sounds cool either way. Narrative-Images or Images-Narrative. And you could publish it using Lulu!

  5. My initial idea was to have the students do hand-drawn illustrations of written narratives. However, we are working next on making digital collages with Adobe Photoshop. Maybe the illustrations could be done this way too...less pressure on making non-majors draw.

  6. Well, somehow my non-majors draw better. They like art enough to take your class and often invite challenges. You never know!

  8. I'd like to hear how this evolves, too. And now I need to look up Lulu.
