Transforming stories into artwork

Students created a visual representation of a character, scene or setting from what they have heard read aloud by the teacher from a chosen text (in Maltese).

Students were given black paper and chalk and were asked to draw the image they had in their heads whilst they were listening to the reading. After the artwork was produced, students talked about their own and others’ pictures, commenting on what they have included and why. This exercise was intended  to expand and enrich their descriptive vocabulary.
