Center Focus

Depict an Event

  1. Many stories or pictures that people create are based on singular events that meant something to them, changed their life in someway, or just astounded or surprised them.
  2. Have your students recall an extraordinary event that happened to them or their family.
  3. They should then depict that event using any art medium that they wish to use. You may want to have samples of different art styles available for your students to refer to.
