Creating Art Prompt: Personal Iconography – Your Story in a Picture!
As you read in the module, iconography can reveal a complex story of beliefs, politics, how one lives, how one should live, history, dreams, practical information, and many many more ideas all beautifully composed in an artwork. There is more to a pretty picture than what is seen at first glance! Take some time to think about your own personal iconography and the story you want to tell right now. Write a list of at least 10 symbolic objects that are your personal iconography and explain what each one symbolizes in a couple of sentences.
Using 5 or more of your symbolic icons and create a beautiful artwork! Creating Artwork Reminder: To create a piece of art you will have to do multiple iterations before you create something you are proud of, give yourself time to experiment! Use the materials you have around your home that you can make marks with: pencils, pens, lipstick, sewing thread (you can sew paper), rip newspapers to collage, use coffee to tint and stain paper or cloth, melt wax, use masking tape as a collage element. What else can you find around your home to make marks with and create shapes with?
