LESSON 7: Character Creation
This lesson is all about creative thinking – exploring the imagination through art, movement and more. We will begin with a simple exercise in which students must look at an abstract picture, and fill out questions about their character on a simple worksheet (ie: “I am from…”, “When I move it looks like…”, etc). The students will then swap sheets, and draw a visual representation of the other student’s worksheet (without seeing the original picture).
