Folk Tales

My year 10 Visual Art class used digital imaging to illustrate the traditional folk tales they studied during English lessons earlier in the year. The signs and symbols in the tales are very specific and the characters archetypal.

This image by Geoffrey illustrates 'Iron John' a male rite of passage story written by the Brothers Grimm about the wild man within who helps men face the responsibilities of adulthood.

The class works are exhibited online here.
