Writing Activity Inspired by Artist Javier Perez aka Cintascotch

Javier 21

Javier Perez takes common objects and draws doodles around them. What if you took a line or two from a famous novel and had students use it in their writing. It would be similar to a found poem, but instead of mashing lots of lines they would just take one. Or you could give them the first half or second half of a poem and let them complete it. Getting started or finishing is tough. This assignment helps students complete a task and stand on the shoulder of a giant.

You can take a quick gander at Javier Perez’s art work with this Google Image search result.

One day I let my students create a few Javier Perez images of their own. Here are a few of them.
