From Art To Story

Explore the online art museum for artworks that tell a story. After finding a culturally significant artwork, brainstorm about the possible events and characters the image illustrates. Then write from the point of view of one of the characters in the image (third-person), sharing the character's thoughts and feelings, describing the events that led up to the picture, or imagining the events that followed. There should be around 500 to 800 words in the narrative. STEP 1: Choose a culturally significant artwork STEP 2: Brainstorm narrative ideas STEP 3: Create a timeline of the events STEP 4: Create a draft of your narrative STEP 5: Share with a friend for feedback STEP 6: Revise and edit STEP 7: Post artwork and writing to Seesaw STEP 8: Record your voice reading STEP 9: Add MLA citation
