$200 stipend, free Metrocard, lunch + three college credits for Public High School Students that are chosen. Students who are 14-18 years of age and currently enrolled in a New York area public high school are invited to apply.
The School of Visual Arts is partnering with environmental non-profit Solar One to offer a free college-level course for New York area public high school students that focuses on the climate crisis. The climate crisis is considered by most citizens and just about all scientists to be the biggest threat humanity has ever faced. And yet, there are many who see climate change as only a possibility that may or may not affect them in the distant future. Although it’s not always clearly visible, New Yorkers are already being impacted by the changing climate in many ways. This course will explore storytelling, voice-over, and animation, and students will work in teams to produce animated videos that will be presented at the SVA Theatre on Monday, September 21, 2020 to kick off United Nations Climate Week.
