The Seamanship Manual Project
Mentor: James McKinnon
How can we use art to empower people? This Keystone was produced in an effort to provide a program in a Vermont boat shop with an accessible seamanship manual. At the Lake Champlain Maritime Museum, students learn together as they sustainably forest, mill, and construct a 10-meter-long wooden rowing boat. Providing an alternative approach to contemporary education questions our rigid approaches to education and reframes the learning process as an individualized undertaking. The Seamanship Manual serves to create alternative access to information through illustration.
