When we think of art, we usually think of images that artists draw. People, places and even animals are all common subjects in art. These images can convey emotion or express feelings when the audience views the work. After all, they say a picture is worth a thousand words. But what if you created a work of art without any images at all? What if you only used text?
So what will this unit’s objective be? Student's were asked to dig deeper into the world of text art, exploring how other artists use text in a variety of different ways. They just complete a few small text based sketchbook projects that challenged how they looked at letters, words and icons. That's what this post is about.
Next, they’ll complete their own text based art work... If you're interested, this unit is posted on our Portal. You can watch the video introduction, research more about text art in the Dig Deeper section, or try out a few small text based project in the Challenges section.
