Visual Literacy: "Reading" and Creating Educational Imagery
August 8, 1:00-1:40pm
‚ÄčKevin Alan Somerville, Self-employed Medical Illustrator, Secondary Substitute Teacher

Website

  • Visual Literacy, 3-12
  • Audience cap: 42
Visual Literacy is based on the idea or premise that pictures can be “read” and the information presented within them can be interpreted and understood, much like we do with written or printed text. It not only enhances learning by promoting the ability to interpret, evaluate, and make meaning from information presented in the form of an image or visual actions; it also fosters development of the skills needed to create such imagery.

Kevin Alan Somerville holds undergraduate degrees in both Zoology and German from Duke University and a Masters of Science degree in Medical Illustration from the Medical College of Georgia. He also holds Rhode Island teacher certification in Secondary Biological Science, and has served the North Kingstown and Narragansett school districts as a substitute teacher.
