Monologues for the (out)WIN!

All images are from The Outwin 2016 finalists collection.

Students should study the portraits, with the only shared information the title of the work, using the Claim-Support-Question Strategy. Each student will make several claims about their assigned image, and support those claims through their own created character. They will use the questions that they come up with as a jumping-off point for character creation. Each fully-realized character should come from the world of the portrait, have a distinct stance and walk, and be able to answer questions presented in an improvised manner.

Great Ideas, Modern Art, and Advertising

This collection consists of advertisements created for the Container Corporation of America in the 1950s. Each advertisement pairs a quote from a "Great Idea of Western Man" with a work of original art. After reviewing the collection, students will create their own art work to reflect a "Great Idea" that they think is important and meaningful in the world today.
