My work has been featured in the current issue of Literacy Head (Volume 1, issue 6)- an online magazine dedicated to teaching literacy through visual arts. The piece they chose is “Luncheon on the Grass”, after Manet’s famous painting of the same title. It is featured in a section called “Write Starts” which they describe as follows:
Images to give writers ideas
Let our collection of images of people listening to and telling stories give your writers ideas! These paintings and illustrations point to the universal nature of telling and listening. What might these characters be saying or hearing? What do these images make you think of? Talk about it, then write about it.
This looks like a great resource for parents, teachers and kids! As I’m very interested and involved in encouraging kids to use their imaginations- whether in art, science or writing- I couldn’t be happier to see my art used in this capacity~
