Ideas for a school project? - November 20th 2014, 03:34 PM

In history class, we are learning about the transcendentalists. Today we were assigned a project with three parts. First we have to spend fifteen minutes outside, alone, with little to no electronic distractions and just leave ourselves to our own thoughts. Then we have to fill out some questions about the whole experience I guess, and for the last part we have to make a project that displays the main ideas of Transcendentalist thinking. We have to present our projects to the class.
He gave us three options- a painting/art piece, a poem, or an iMovie. We can absolutely do something else, as long as we get our idea approved by the teacher first. I'm really uncomfortable with all three of those options due to the fact that we are going to present them- I'm terrible at using iMovie, I'm a bad artist and I do like to write but I am absolutely terrified of presenting poetry to my whole class... But the thing is, I can't think of any other ideas. I can't exactly just do an informative poster because that would kind of defeat the purpose of the project.
The only idea I have is to maybe do some kind of collage, but even then I really don't know how to go about doing that, and I'd also have to go pay to print stuff out at the library because we don't have a color printer at home.
Can you guys help me come up with ideas?
Thank you!

I think that one thing you can do is expand your options when it comes to these three givento you. What iI mean is don't limit yourself to painting. You can make 3D art, a sculpture or diarahma (hope I am spelling that word right ) likewise you can expand poetry into other creative writing forms. Or instead of iMovie you can do short film (not sure what iMovie is but I'm assuming that short films won't be much different) alternatively you can write a play, short story, conduct an interview. Hope this helps a bit.

If you do want to do a collage, you can try using materials such as old magazines and newspapers. I'm sure you could ask people for their old magazines, that way you wouldn't have to print off stuff. Just a thought!

Also, if you do a collage, you can put letters from magazines on it to spell out words. But like others have said, an art piece isn't limited to painting. You could also write a poem on the collage and it may be easier for you to read it in front of people. I did a project like that where I read a poem from a collage on a board and it was way easier than when I read off of paper.

Best of luck,

I'm just not sure with the collage, because I don't know how I could make a collage and then go up in front of the class and relate it to transcendentalism.
