Students watch a 4-minute film, Silent Crescendo by Emmanuel Vaughan-Lee, about an artist who paints with tea and ink. The film is a intimate portrait of an ex-Yugoslavian émigré artist who follows a daily ritual of creating simple drawings.
In this lesson, students explore the creative process and discuss what individuals and society gain from living a creative life. Reflective writing prompts are also included for students to demonstrate their understanding of the story.
