Art!

  1. 1. ART!<br />CarlyNeun TE 922<br />
  2. 2. I love art: I draw it, I collect it, and I try and learn from it.<br />Chances are some of our students will love art too, and that can be a powerful tool for understanding!<br />
  3. 3. Why?<br />Illustrate a scene. This was drawn for me by my friend Kathleen Finn. It’s from a Battlestar Galactica story I wrote.<br />A Secret Santa gift from a member of an online community. It was a nice way to give a gift without spending money. <br />Visualize characters in stories. This one is Hana, a character of mine drawn by Yoo-min Lee.<br />
  4. 4. EXAMPLE: This was draw for a class in which we were asked to draw/create something to reflect the theme or characters of a story.<br />This happens to be for Wuthering Heights. I chose to portray the differences between Heathcliff and Edgar Linton, and how that effects Cathrine.<br />
  5. 5. Art also teachers patience and practice. <br />Also, you have to look closely at details to improve! That’s a good skill in literature too!<br />
  6. 6. See? Practice!<br />2004<br />2010<br />
  7. 7. Art Ideas for Class<br />A short comic– This is mentioned in The English Teacher’s Companion (Burke). Students make a comic of an important scene, thinking about why it is important and give themselves a visual to refer back to while studying! I imagine this would also work well in a History class.<br />A picture—Not just a doodle. Like my example for Wuthering Heights, students can create a picture incorporating important characters and thematic elements. You could ask students to write an explanation to go along with their art.<br />Maps/Timelines—These and other projects can use student-drawn images to illustrate a historical, literary, or personal timeline. Maps of a journey, such as the traditional heroic journey, can help clarify difficult concepts. Even math and other core content areas can benefit from images!<br />
