How does character inform the arts?
This lesson sequence enables students to explore character primarily in visual arts and music.
Additional focus is on facial expression, movement, mime and non-locomotor body formation. Students will learn to sing a song about mythical creatures and create a composition about that character. Through an examination of figurative drawing and sculpting, students will also create their own mythical creature sculptures, explore shadows and movement, then create and draw ‘human’ action figures.
