SD60 ILLUSTRATIONS – CREATIVE THINKING
#1 CREATIVE THINKING ILLUSTRATION
Description of Illustration: The class was studying their own stories; stories found in their own lives. Students were asked to create a Claymation story incorporating setting, characters, and plot. They discussed their story, planned their story, created their story then finally shared their story through Stop Motion Video.
When asked about his story Kevin responded: “I kinda thought about me and my brother chopping down trees and then we came back home and we seen a lynx and I changed it into a bear. We have big trees at Mile 62 and half on the Alaska Highway. So I put big trees in the story and I made a bear because we have bears at our place and a bear climbed up a tree at our place so that’s what I put in my video. At the end, I had the bear eating the person to make something interesting in the movie and sometimes I’m scared they might eat me when I’m chopping wood.”
