Here what youth have to say
Hi, I am Crystal A. Johnson, one of thehttps://youtu.be/56u48Pev29E
filmmakers of this video and I am a teaching artist in Los Angeles. I normally teach media arts to youth but teaching the arts is threatened all over the country. Yes, it has ramifications for the livelihood of artists but I am also sincerely concerned about the mental health of youth. Media arts has so many social emotional learning benefits. My wish is to be able to make sure there is equipment and lessons made available via zoom, Skype or Facebook, whatever a youth needs in order to learn the arts. I want them to be both creative and video journal about this unique time in our history. This may require some equipment for some of the youth. I am a trained teaching Artist by both the Actors Fund and PS Arts. - Lessons would include how to vlog, camera framing, (This is My Story) I've worked on numerous shows and television news. I normally teach as media arts coach in Los Angeles. Shout to Nataki Hewling, look out for her upcoming fundraiser to specifically support her program and the America Unmasked project.
