Lizard of ARS: Secondary students design parody masks and installation on the OpenSim
Apr 6 @ 03:00 PM – 04:00 PM

Presenter: Mary Stokrocki (SL: MaryLou Goldrosen), Educators and Trainers
Description: After exploring the OpenSim with students for four years, I invited them to revise my parody play, The Lizards of ARS/ART, a satiric reinterpretation of Baum’s (1900) The Wizard of Oz. Using participatory action research, I gathered their 2-D mask images converted into 3-D forms and related parodies. Two older students arranged them in two different installations on the OpenSim virtual world. This communal experience helped develop imaginative play, digital skills, and diverse art meaning.

Participants will be learn to revise the model parody, transfer 2-D mask, build 3-D form, and install
