Explore story creation utilizing visual and narrative means. Children will be involved in multiple art and storytelling activities centered on a favourite object brought from home.
- Explore an object by memory, drawing, painting, sculpture and photography.
- Share results of exploration with peers through discussion.
- Tell a personal story of the object and its personal meaning.
- Create a new story/s about the object. Express it visually and narratively (oral and written).
The premise is based on a model provided by the Portland Art Museum. http://objectstories.org/
