Product Description
This is a really successful painting project that I give my senior grade 11's and 12's.
It's super open, with lots of choice given, which students always love.

It asks them to do a PASSAGE painting - a painting inspired by words.
Their final artwork doesn't have to include the words themselves, but the words become the source of inspiration for their artworks.
I also let them do an optional diptych or triptych (works well depending on their choice of text).

Included is:
-a project handout with a breakdown of where they can find their passage
(movies, books, religious texts, newspaper headlines, poetry etc.)
-3 steps in the project (the first two involving pre-planning in their sketchbooks)
-a rubric to make marking easy

They're always SO great. Most students decide on really strong song lyrics to turn into a painting but I've seen also social justice ones...super creative stuff!


TIP - sometimes I pick their TYPE of source out of a hat to get them really excited - so I put "poetry" / "movies" "books" etc. into a hat and they have to pick and then find a source based on their choice.

It's a really flexible project!
-you could listen to one song and let them paint based on just that one
-you could have them incorporate just one word from a passage
...endless options
