The Narrative Triptych project was the first project of the year for this advanced class. Students were asked to tell a story in three parts, working in any two-dimensional media. They were encouraged to think about scale and shifting perspectives while creating a clear three-part narrative.
For this project, students had to tell a story or describe an event using 3 or more layers. Rather than working in a linear narrative fashion as they did for their narrative triptych, students were asked to use mixed media and visually layer various elements of their story. They were also asked to vary the scale of each layer to create a more engaging composition which challenges the viewer to interpret the story. This is an advanced project where students are pushed to use new media and to work in a more conceptually interesting way.
