During this project students learned how to make an accordion book, find an inspirational quote, brainstorm ways of interpreting their quote in a visual way, and finally draw the chosen quote inside the book. We looked at many examples of artists and designers who draw text and illustrate words visually. Students found inspirational song lyrics, quotes from historical persons, while some used their own poetry. The goal was for students to learn how to create meaning through drawing and emphasizing mood and emotion with how the letters were drawn.
