Many of our participating ArtLink classes have been and continue to video conference with one another. This is a very exciting component to our programs. Today there was a video conference between a class in Glastonbury, CT and a class in St.Petersburg, Russia. This is a live, real time, video conference. The students meet and ask questions about one another's art work and cultures. In this case, both classes spoke in their partners native languages. It was inspiring!
This image is a split screen of the two classes. USA is on the right and Russia is on the left. The video conference brings the students on a brief but extraordinary journey into one another's class room, one another's country and one another's culture.
