Module Four

Visual storytelling of one kind and another has been around since cavemen were drawing on the walls of their caves. Pictures which tell a story (narrative art) have always played an important part in art and have been used to depict real events (as in the Bayeux Tapestry) and tales from mythology and legend (as in Botticelli’s Birth of Venus). This module explores single pictures and sequences which depict both real and imaginary events using a variety of techniques. Techniques covered in this module will include 1. Mono prints 2. Altering the surface by tearing, cutting and manipulating paper 3. Working in sequence 4. Altering a book 5. Planning and using a storyboard Inspiration will come from the work of artists Su Blackwell and Frances Pickering The module ends with a recycling task transforming a second hand book to display a sequence of pictures which tell a story.
