My mother teaches high school ceramics. Each year the art department puts on a show in the student gallery. Students make artwork in multiple different media depending on what they are studying. The theme for this year is, “It was a Dark and Stormy Night.” My mom is challenging her ceramics students to find a piece of literature that they can illustrate in clay. She is looking for titles and authors of works of literature that could be used as inspiration for her students. She would like to give them a list of things they can pick from. Her definition of literature is something that was put into print, not something a panel of people has determined is worthy of that title.
Some examples would be The Cat in The Hat by Dr. Seuss where the cat really is a scary creature to the children because he is breaking all the rules, they are going to get into trouble and he refuses to leave, or the wicked stepmother in Cinderella, not to mention the witch in Rapunzel. But she is not limiting this to classics from the past.
To thank you for helping out my mother I am willing to give at least one copy of Once Upon a Time: A Collection of Classic Fairytales by Brothers Grimm and Kevin Tong to someone who provides the title and author of a piece of literature that could be used as inspiration for a high school student.
This is open wherever Book Depo ships (print) or wherever Amazon or Barnes and Nobel (digitally). The giveaway will close on Sunday the 9th with the winner announced on Monday the 10th of Sep.
Thank you again,
