Drawings based on Existential Characters
As part of an integrated project with 'Context', Level 4 students where introduced to the idea of existentialism. We explored this through presentations and discussions as a group. The students the chose existential characters from literature and film and got under their skin to try to understand how they viewed the world. This included characters from the film 'Drive', Kafka's 'Metamorphosis', 'Don Draper' from Madmen and King Lear. They then worked in groups to draw imaginary scenes of what would happen if their existential characters met.
