Volunteering at our neighborhood elementary school, PS 217, in Brooklyn, John and Stephanie introduce graphic design principles to fourth and fifth graders during a Magnet Arts Program and put these concepts into practice in published exercises. We were so inspired working with this diverse group of student — they brought such unique perspectives and insights into each execution of the assignment. Below are a few highlights from our alphabet book project, A to Z. Pick a letter or two unlike anyone else in the class and illustrate a verb starting with that letter.
The collection of final designs were digital printed and shared with the class and school leadership.
Special thanks to Judy Brandwein and PS 217 Teachers and Staff for creating such a warm and creative environment.
