Art Trading Card On-going Assignment English 20-1 A Doll’s House
Art trading cards are playing card sized pieces of art. You will reflect your understandings of the play in your cards. You may use your imagination for the design and medium of your cards. For example, your card could use collage, crayon, crayon resist, felts, fabric, pencil crayons, paint, pastels, etc. We will look at a selection of art trading cards to show you how the size of the card is not a limiting factor on what you can create! There aresome guidelines you must follow:
- You are going to use your responses to each act to help you with this project. You may use your headlines, sketches or summaries. You may use ideas you have already created or add and delete ideas. The main focus of this assignment is to go beyond your literal understandings of the play and discuss at a metaphorical and symbolic level.
- You will be including a rationale with your card in order to explain the choices you make. What are you showing? What understandings of the play are included in the card? Why is this important? Why did you choose the medium and design? What did you hope the viewer of the card would understand about your card and the play?
- There are some ideas you may want to consider in each act. The first act you may want to consider Nora’s sense of the true nature of her marriage. The second act you may focus on Nora’s awakening, her epiphany if you will. Act three is a great opportunity to look at Nora’s change of character. How has she changed over the course of the play?
Each card will be handed in at the end of each act or at the deadline assigned by the teacher. Each card will be graded based on the following rubric:
