Day 1: Introduction  ­ Welcome – we were asked to fill out notecards that would help Linda get to know us  better. o Name o Where you call home o Arts you practice o Arts you’re interested in exploring o Anything else she should know ­ Introduction of Linda, the published creative writer: o World Gone Beautiful o The Changing Story  We discussed metaphor. What is it? What are some examples? Where is  it?  We did an interpretive reading of the cover image of this book: Image:  Source:­changing­story/  Before and After – someone noted that both of the objects in the image (tree and door) are made of wood and made the inference that it’s gone from a tree (before) to a door (after).  Different possibilities in different landscapes – someone noted that this image of the tree (as a symbol of possibility) placed or found in the woods (a location where one may not typically find a physical door or the metaphor of possibility) is a representation of possibilities being found in different locations, not just those one may expect.  Linda’s Background of the Image –  Linda shared where the inspiration for this image came from with a personal story about her finding a door with a lock on it in the wooded area around where she lives. She said that for her when she sees this image and thinks of the story that inspired it (as well as including the context of the book it’s introducing), the metaphor she thinks of it is “open the door to the wilderness of knowledge.” ­ Visual Art Readings o Celeste Nelms (LA Image) – we as a class read the image together and then  Linda shared her knowledge of what the image was, what the intent behind it was, and how it came to be.  What do you see?  What could the artist be communicating?  Your response/How does it make you feel? Comments on propaganda (versus art) – interpretive versus not o Abstract Art ­ Activity – we were guided through an activity for us to share some things about  ourselves and to get to know each other better. o On a sheet of paper write two interesting things about yourself o Linda collects and randomly redistributes o We must mingle about and find the person whose paper we have through  discussion. (Noting that we are also being looked for by someone) o Once we find our person, ask them there name, where they call home, and have a  conversation with them. o We will introduce each other with these interesting facts.  ­ Maya Angelou – Still I Rise o Linda read the piece aloud o We broke up into 4 groups:  Discuss and share the writing style of the piece. Identify literary devices  Discuss and share the content of the piece. What is it about? What’s being  conveyed? What are we learning about the author?  Discuss and share the real world application of the piece. How does it  connect to life? How does what you hear/read play out in your  own/someone else’s life now? o We shared group by group
