One Charming Fountain


Welcome to Day 28 of Drawing Into Poems, my daily drawing/seeing/writing study into poetry.  You can read more about this month-long project here on my April 1 post.  Feel free to read the books with me and pull out your own sketchbook and jewelry box full of metaphor too...

Day 28 - Waterless Fountain

Students - I notice that this month, I have been pulled toward sketching many artistic objects.  There is something about interpreting an object that was conceived of by another human, something different from drawing nature.  I feel a connection to the person who made this fountain, this person I will never know.  And I think I'm getting better at some small elements of perspective too.

This blog and The Poem Farm Facebook page will be dark from Monday, April 29 - Sunday, May 5 as I am participating in Screen Free Week.  I welcome you to unplug with me!

Your drawings have been great to see, Amy, and inspiring too. I've kept journals with students for a lot of years and have shared what your doing with teachers at my school for more ideas! Thanks-have a good 'unplugged' week!

I think the poem is right there on the left. It is even shaped like a fountain.

Lovely - and I love your thoughts about drawing an object created by another.

Enjoy screen-free week - just a heads' up, my column on Janice's THE OTHER SIDE OF THE STORY blog should be up on Wednesday and mentions you and this wonderful project. :0)
