  • Writing Your Outline

    Where do I begin?

    This week we will start with an outline to begin the creative process.

  • What Do You Find Interesting?

    Chances are, if you find it interesting, so will your audience!

    (For example: Your Professor loves frogs)

  • Tell a Story

    The best teachers are often great storytellers (just look at the TED videos!)Stories are the best way to get your audience interested.
  • Brainstorm ideas!

    Try using first person sentence frames to get startedI seeI thinkI feelI wonderI discovered
  • Express your own point of view!

    This is NOT your professor.

    Besides the hair is all wrong!

  • Make it Personal

    Think in terms of your own personal viewpoint or experience

    For example-

    What can you discover about an artist or art form? How does that change your understanding?
  • Write several drafts

    You can change your outline and ideas as you research images, facts, etc.

    Revision is PART of the creative process.

  • Remember
    Research=Looking and Thinking

    One example - If your topic is Where Do I Find Art? try something as simple as walking around campus and noting all of the visual and performing arts you see in one day

    You could even take photos!

  • Then look at what you have found

    Where did I find art around me?

    I found art

    Listening to the radio on my way to school

    Salsa dancing with my friends

    Watching a funny video on YouTube

    Walking by a statue in the Peace Garden by the library

  • Dont Panic! Ask Questions!
    Here are some FAQs from other students

  • FAQ: How do I limit my topic?

    After you brainstorm find what looks most interesting. Often a single artist, a single element, is a good starting place.Think of going on a journey or investigation.
  • FAQ: How Do I Write a Story About a Topic Like The Elements of Art?

    One example-

    Find a painting that you have a strong connection with - then explain how the artist used the elements of art (line shape, color, etc) to communicate that story or meaning.

    Vincent van Gogh - Wheat Field with Cypresses 1889

  • Another example

    Choose one element and explore your personal response to it.

    For example- COLOR-What color or color combinations do you find most pleasing? Where do you find those colors? How have artists, designers, or advertisers used them for an effect?
  • FAQ: What do I do with a broad topic like
    How do the arts celebrate cultural traditions?

    The topics are broad on purpose. It is up to you to think critically and decide what story you want to tell.Tip: Choose one cultural tradition that you are passionate about and find ways artists or performers have celebrated it.

    El Dia de Los Muertos

  • Cultural Traditions Can Mean Many Things

    Football can be a cultural tradition How have artists celebrated football traditions?

    Cultural traditions can also refer to a time period or society. For example- How did artists celebrate culture in the time of the Renaissance?

  • Give Yourself Time to Think
