"My students were incredibly talented with many powerful stories to tell. It was my hope to give them new tools of visual communication to add to their skill sets."
Isaiah King and Larianna Krysak, our talented Visiting Teaching Artists, have recently returned from two weeks volunteering in Kakuma and Nairobi.
While there, Isaiah ran creative workshops for FilmAid production staff and refugee youth film makers, and Larianna ran workshops on project planning, leadership and communications.
Isaiah's creative workshops in Kakuma involved a range of creative design tools and methods including, graphic design with an eye on film making, storyboard development, typography, title design and animation.
The FilmAid crew in Kakuma reports that it was a treat to have such talented and multi-skilled artists on board. " It was great to have the workshops. You should see some of the designs that are now coming through from the kids! "
