Art & Literacy: Footloose

This month we discussed careers in the arts. We looked at the work of many illustrators, defined the term illustration, and analyzed how images can communicate emotions to support text. Tim Bowers has illustrated a number of books, including Footloose (by Kenny Loggins). Bower’s animal illustrations in the book, Footloose, are bold and animated (and difficult not to love).

In class, we experimented altering facial features to communicate different feelings and created our own illustrations.
