The goal of this studio was to explore the effects of Hurricane Katrina from the perspectives of children. It involved the participation of elementary school students in Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama and produced three distinct projects:
(1) a documentary film entitled “Stepping Back,”
(2) a book entitled “Three Foot Eleven” which chronicled the experience of children affected by the storm, and
(3) a portfolio of children’s’ drawings for buildings entitled “Houses that Katrina Built,” which were inspired by the experience of the monster storm.
