Students use paint to create a symmetrical design. They look at their creation and write a poem filled with figurative language about what they see. Students typically write fascinating poems, and they are thrilled to see the designs that appear before their eyes!
This project is best as individual work. The objectives are to write a poem with more than one poetic device, to translate visual imagery into written imagery, and to craft a well-designed and neatly presented artistic and written work!
