QR Codes and Digital Art Statements
This week, the art department at Korea International School organized an amazing tech-enhanced exhibit that showcased beautiful student art. Almost every art piece had a QR code that linked visitors to the artist’s statement. I walked around the exhibit reading and listening to artist statements on my smartphone. It was great to learn about the context of each art piece. Many students provided their statements through ePortfolio sites (Wix and ViewBook), or online audio-sharing sites (Vocaroo and SoundCloud).
This exhibit was organized by KIS’s Sara Arno, Brianna Bedessem, Angel Catholic, Sondra Mullenax, and Sallie Inman.

Here are some digital posters that were created:
