Douglas Taylor Elementary School and Telpochcalli School Site Visits
October 19, 2022
CAPE After School Research Program Coordinator Noé Cuéllar visited two partnerships in action – Douglas Taylor Elementary School and Telpochcalli School. At Douglas Taylor, students participate after school in a year-long program described as, “Exploring our creativity through the lens of video, photography & drawing,” with teaching artist Emilie Robinson and teacher Monica Wright. At Telpochcalli, students are learning about music after school, described as, “Come make music and explore a variety of music styles,” with teacher Flor Flores and teaching artist Jason Lee Roebke.
This week, students of Emilie Robinson (teaching artist) and Monica Wright (teacher) are discovering and creating work using the cyanotype photographic process.
Here, students create cyanotypes using found objects.
During the visit to Telpochcalli School, teaching artist Jason Lee Roebke showed students how to write a story in three parts, then he demonstrated how musical rhythms are also composed of sequences, patterns of four beats. The students drew patterns on grids, then played them on the drum machine.
