    9. 9. Writing Your Outline Where do I begin? This week we will start with an outline to begin the creative process.
    10. 10. What Do You Find Interesting? Chances are, if you find it interesting, so will your audience! (For example: Your Professor loves frogs…)
    11. 11. Tell a Story • The best teachers are often great storytellers (just look at the TED videos!) • Stories are the best way to get your audience interested.
    12. 12. Brainstorm ideas! • Try using first person sentence frames to get started… • I see… • I think… • I feel… • I wonder… • I discovered…
    13. 13. Express your own point of view! This is NOT your professor. Besides the hair is all wrong!
    14. 14. Make it Personal • Think in terms of your own personal viewpoint or experience For example• What can you discover about an artist or art form? How does that change your understanding?
    15. 15. Write several drafts • You can change your outline and ideas as you research images, facts, etc. Revision is PART of the creative process.
    16. 16. Remember – Research=Looking and Thinking One example - If your topic is “Where Do I Find Art?” try something as simple as walking around campus and noting all of the visual and performing arts you see in one day… You could even take photos!
    17. 17. Then look at what you have found Where did I find art around me? I found art – Listening to the radio on my way to school Salsa dancing with my friends Watching a funny video on YouTube Walking by a statue in the Peace Garden by the library…
    18. 18. Don’t Panic! Ask Questions! Here are some FAQ’s from other students
    19. 19. FAQ: How do I limit my topic? • After you brainstorm – find what looks most interesting. • Often a single artist, a single element, is a good starting place. • Think of going on a journey or investigation.
    20. 20. FAQ: How Do I Write a Story About a Topic Like “The Elements of Art”? One exampleFind a painting that you have a strong connection with then explain how the artist used the elements of art (line shape, color, etc) to communicate that story or meaning.
    21. 21. Another example… Choose one element and explore your personal response to it. • For example- COLOR• What color or color combinations do you find most pleasing? • Where do you find those colors? • How have artists, designers, or advertisers used them for an effect?
    22. 22. FAQ: What do I do with a broad topic like “How do the arts celebrate cultural traditions?” • The topics are broad on purpose. It is up to you to think critically and decide what story you want to tell. • Tip: Choose one cultural tradition that you are passionate about and find ways artists or performers have celebrated it. El Dia de Los Muertos
    23. 23. Cultural Traditions Can Mean Many Things Football can be a cultural tradition – How have artists celebrated football traditions? Cultural traditions can also refer to a time period or society. For example- How did artists celebrate culture in the time of the Renaissance?
    24. 24. Give Yourself Time to Think Don’t put it off until the last minute!
