In Sight: Visual Poetry

Students used their imaginations and magazines to create visual poetry! They revisited some of their original works to give them new meaning by giving them a new shape!

Lesson Note: Creative Artist guru, Julia Cameron, says the part of us that creates art is about 7 years old. And so, it is no surprise that, with scissors in hand, even the most serious student finds themselves oddly enjoying this activity. ‘Language shapes our experiences, ‘ visual artist, Adam Pendleton told the NY Times in 2018, ‘or it gives new shape… to the things we experience.’
