by SKA on 09/10/16

For the past several months, SKA students Vivia Lung, Ivy Xue, Erin Li, Kaci Xie, Brandon Koh, Christina Zhao, Peilin Chung, Tiffany Weng, Martha Sungkono, Priscilla Lin, Love Smith, Andrew Young, and Sharon Chen have dedicated their time and effort to a large international project – the IIME Japan Art Mile (JAM)! The Japan Art Mile matches school pairs from Japan and another country to connect the two schools; SKA had the privilege to participate this year with our high school students paired with a great group of students from our partner school, SEISA High School. During this semester, SKA students have been directly communicating with our partner school using an online chat forum for a collaborative mural. Our students and our partners decided on the theme of landmarks to portray each country’s diverse culture. For this collaborative mural, the painting was split directly in half, each with their own painting styles. Pictured below is our students’ side of the mural with elements identified with our country. From this mural, students had the opportunity to learn interactively on the culture of our Japanese partner school on the forum JAM provides through the exchanging and sharing of each other’s research, opinions, and ideas. They then expressed learned how to express what what they have learned in a visible way of creating one mural by drawing halves of a canvas. SKA is very proud of our students for completing such a large project as it is a rather high level exchange. Congratulations to our students for a job well done!
