This is part 1 of my middle school art student's assignment. I'm posting it here for all homeschoolers and new homeschool parents who find themselves interested in a new, globally-minded, and relevant creative art project for themselves or their kids. Enjoy!
Here’s the idea. Each one of us/you will brainstorm and write a poem about the coronavirus and/or social distancing and how you are handling it. You will edit this poem for clarity, cleverness, and grammar and turn it in.
Make it real and emotional by giving specific true-to-life examples, or make it super creative by writing an allegory or metaphor for your current experience.
- An allegory is a story, poem, or picture that can be interpreted to reveal a hidden meaning, typically a moral or political one.

Once you're finished with your poem, move on to part 2: illustration
Today you will illustrate your first illustration from your storybook. Remember, you may do as many illustrations as you like within your book. The minimum is 2 illustration pages, per person. Let's start by evaluating your storyboard page from your first passage of text. This should already be complete by now. If not, go back to the storyboard assignment and complete it first, then move forward to this step. Looking at your complete storyboard page of three design options, think about which design best communicates the feeling and event from the selected passage. Now that you have a clear idea...
Storyboard Design is a commonly used practice within a production process for show business but is also extremely beneficial for brainstorming book illustrations. Its basically brainstorming and showing multiple potential layouts, compositions, and examples of how you can illustrate a line or event from within your book. Here is a video to reference to gain a better understanding of what storyboarding is all about. I want you to write one of your sentences from your story at the top of a page. Under your story sentence, draw three rectangles stacked vertically on top of one another. Within each box, I...
Hi! Welcome to today's blog article where I talk about how you can evaluate, consider, and develop your artwork. To begin talking about how to evaluate art in general, you must first have a strong understanding of how to talk about the elements and principles of art and design. Once you can break apart a painting into its core elements and principles, you can critique it alone or in a group and ensure everyone else understands exactly what you're talking about. It also allows you to simplify a potentially complicated image to evaluate the core purpose or message within the art...
