In this art-meets-creative writing type of class, students will learn how to make fantastic calligrams with live instruction and feedback from the teacher. A calligram is text arranged in such a way that it forms a thematically related image.The teacher shows the learners different forms and styles (a single word, a phrase, a portion of a song, and an excerpt from a poem respectively) that are used in illustrating fantastic calligrams and suggests illustration tips in every single meeting.The...
By creating calligrams, learners get to experiment with distinct forms in verbal illustration by using English calligraphy/typeface as their primary source of inspiration.Every week, the learner gets the opportunity to draw one form or type of calligram. By the end of the class, learners would have prepared a number of wonderful illustrations in distinct styles.This proficiency-learning art method helps to demonstrate that constructing art can be fun and educational at the same time since it utilizes visual and verbal components in its making.
Creating calligrams is an exercise that merges English and illustration. Being both an English teacher and a visual artist, I am offering this class as an invitation for a multi-disciplinary approach to learning illustration by verbal influences and English calligraphy.
A sketchbook, pencils, color markers/pens.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
The learners will be assessed on their ability to listen to instructions, deliver their theme-related calligrams on time, and of course, last but not least, creativity.
40 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
