Poetry and Printmaking (Grade 11 Visual Arts AVI3M)

I LOVED how this assignment turned out!  I liked the idea of using magnetic poetry in order to inspire a piece of art- I also liked the literacy connection.  The grade 11 students were asked to go to and create any sentence or phrase.  When they had completed and taken a screen shot of their words, they were asked to create a monoprint that would work with their phrase.  They had to think critically about what kind of colours and shapes would depict the emotions that their poetry evoked.  Click the pictures to see larger versions of these pictures (sorry, but no matter what I do some of these pictures are uploading sideways) .
