This PowerPoint was used alongside an AP Art lesson based around Shaun Tan's children's book The Rabbits and his essay, titled Originality and Creativity.
This essay can be found here:
The Rabbits deals with the European colonization of Australia as well as, in a subtextual way, the problem of invasive species.
The essay by Tan talks about his process as he worked on the book and how he went from idea to completed product.
In an AP or upper level art class, this book study helped to prepare students to choose the ideas they would use to create a body of work over the semester.
This book would also make an excellent choice for a creative writing class, talented and gifted program or World History class
