The Jam: Mad Mashup
Kids activate their imagination by mashing up popular culture and styles that they enjoy or style they enjoy. For that week, we might introduce “Chibi” style and do Chibi style spiderman. We might look at Tim Burton and do Tim Burton-style Hello Kitty. Throughout this process, kids get to fire up their imagination and pay attention to what makes an image, a character or a style recognizable. They will also learn loads of interesting vocabulary such as talking about their superhero characters in English and Mandarin; different adjectives that describe different styles of comics. Key words used during the session will be spoken about bilingually and recapped in our post-session quiz.
