|Investigative Question or Issue: How can a passage of Adirondack writing be used as the overarching theme of an artist's book?|
Prior to engaging in this challenge, students should explore a variety of prose passages, songs, and poems about the Adirondacks (see resources cited below under Comments. Each student should select a specific passage from one of these works as the basis for responding to the challenge.
Please create an artist's book that is based on your personal, creative interpretation of a short writing by an Adirondack writer. Your book will be a stand-alone work of art. Your book should have a front and back cover and be at least 4 pages in length. It should be unified in appearance. Your work should exhibit an attention to neatness and detail including correct spelling if text is used.
You may use as many mediums as you feel necessary in the creation of the book, but one of them must be a print from natural botanical materials that you have collected. Your book may contain all, some, or none of the actual text from your chosen passage. No matter how you choose to use the text, the theme of the writing and how it affects you should be evident throughout the finished product. Please be sure to give proper credit to the author of the writing that inspired your work whether or not you use direct quotes from the writing.
Your finished books will be displayed in the public library.
