Create “something” creative (such as a podcast, painting,
poem, song, play, theatre performance, interpretive dance or other form of dance, musical
composition, etc) that interrogates at least TWO of the materials I have assigned. Your artistic creation can be anything of your choosing. Your artistic expression
may be a dedication to the authors, the concepts they discuss, or how you relate to the
materials. After creating your artistic item/expression, you will write a ONE-page singlespaced (or 2-page double-spaced) write up that does the following:
• Describes what the artistic piece is doing, is inspired by, or reflecting on
o If a poem or song, break down line by line of the poem and explain
what it means (See Genius.com for an example of this)
o If a painting, describe the painting in vivid detail. Imagine you are
describing it to someone that cannot see. Describe the colors, textures,
o If a theatre performance, explain who are the major characters in your
piece and what the main plot, climax, ending of the story is
o If dance, you would be recording yourself for me to view, and then
you would explain how each movement connects to your expression
o For musical composition, instrumentals, etc, describe the emotions in
the music and how the tempos connect to what you’re expressing.
Imagine you’re describing it to someone that cannot hear.
• Explains how the artistic piece connects to the materials you have chosen
• Explains the contributions the author have made and how those speak to your
• Be sure to cite at least TWO reading/text and use quotes and
evidence from the text to support your art piece.
