An Artistic Collaboration: Using Digital Art to Spur Creative Writing
High school Language Arts students will collaborate with Art students to create blog entries that combine digital artwork and creative writing. The art students will create art pieces that the LA students will explore. The LA students will use the art and create creative writing pieces inspired by the art students' works. Together, students will then digitize the art work and combine it with the creative writing. The lesson will culminate with blog entries that showcase the artwork and the creative writing it inspired.
