Translating the verbal to visual- turning a dramatic text into a full sensory experience- is not a linear process. The early stages of world building often involve working backwards and using imagery as another way to discover the story on the page.
A small but mighty group (including resident Wizard Wayne Vettleson!) got together on an October Sunday morning to dive into Mood Board Making! Online! We are living in the future!
We all hopped on Zoom, and I set up a Google Slides file that everyone could edit live. After a quick primer, some examples, and a virtual high five, off we went!
While the key words the students came up with and the images they selected all speak to the world of the play in a multitude of ways, the most valuable part of this exercise was the conversation these images sparked. Scroll down for a look at this wonderful creative work!
