  • G: 1.2Ac: Choose from a range of materials and methods of traditional and contemporary artistic practices to plan works of art and design.
  • A:DAY 1: What Book / Story / Song have you brought in and thought about to use as your inspiration for this ILLUSTRATION in Photoshop? As you have read, listened to the “literature”, what have you pulled from the “story?” Is it a phrase, an idea and feeling from the ENTIRETY of the story? IS it a character? Is it something entirely different? This is going to be your PERSONAL ILLUSTRATION about the work of literature.
  • G: Looking over the THUMBNAILS and SKETCHES you CAME IN WITH… What have you accomplished today in the process of ILLUSTRATING the work of “LITERATURE.” How are you making strong artistic choices (look at the Artist Habits of Mind to make a reflection on here).
