Art Journaling 107

I saw a poet somewhere who writes by just choosing words from a page in a book, and blacking out all the rest. I think kids could have a lot of fun with this if they were allowed to make really silly sentences that were still structurally correct.
1. The students will receive one column of a newspaper story. They are to circle a series of words that make a complete sentence. My one rule is that no two words may be next to each other. The chosen words are highlighted and circled with a marker.
2. The newsletter is taped to the left on a journal page. On the right, the made up sentence is written out by hand so that it can be easily read.
3. Finally, whatever image this sentence brings to mind would be illustrated and colored with colored pencils. I imagine these pages would be very fun to share with the class when finished.
