Below are instructions for project 9 (imagery inspired by words).
For this project you are to create an image based on a literary source. Your source could be a poem, lyrics from a song, a passage from a short story, etc. and should inspire a visual image. You may incorporate any of the styles and/or techniques that we’ve done in class for this project. Please be sure to include your literary source in a separate document or photograph.
The length of your text can be a few sentences up to a few paragraphs. If you select a longer source, you may take a smaller passage from it.
Below is a list of a few things to look for when selecting your literary source.
1.) words that describe something visual (a person, place or thing).
2.) words that describe a color
3.) words that evoke emotion (colors can be associated with certain emotions – see notes below for examples)
Red – Anger
Blue – Sadness
Gray – Solemn
Bright Colors – Joy/Excitement
This is an open medium project. Paint, pen, markers, pencil, colored pencil, collage, etc. are all acceptable mediums.
The image should be done on a 15 x 20 inch hot press illustration board with a 1 inch border.
This project will be due on Monday, 4/27
