A number of my students have been producing creative responses to the theme of folklore. Many of them opted to interpret this prompt in the widest possible sense and began to research oral traditions and folk tales from all over the world. I placed no restrictions on the media they used (a definite plus point of only ever teaching small groups!) and allowed them to create work in whatever materials they felt suited their ideas.
A number of fantastic pieces were created, including a ghost train rendered in pencil, paint and collage, a scene of death and growth centered around some mysterious mushrooms, a Day of the Dead-inspired skull wearing a crystal crown, a gothic seahorse and a ghostly, floating clown.
