Not drawing per se - but art/writing warm-ups

I use prints and have students write a story - 'this is a snapshot -
what happened before, what happened after"...
Become part of the action - write from a subject's point of view.

Dialog from a scene...
Respond to art - poetry... (ekphrastic)

Study an object and describe - specific

Directions on process -

Compare and contrast two pieces.

Brainstorm a list of adjectives...

Depending on the print... list action verbs - example - strumming,
twirling, stomping, strumming.... Benton's Sources of Country Music...

Cassatt's The Letter - write the letter...

Letter to the editor - importance of art, support the arts

Op ed - why we need art...
