Reading Response Exercise #51: Setting—Time, Place, Mood, and Art Materials!

Read for at least twenty to thirty minutes. When you are done, think about what you have read.

Get out some drawing paper and your crayons or colored pencils, watercolors or pastels. Now draw or paint a setting from the passage you just read. Play with colors, lines, and dimensions. Luxuriate in the pleasure of visual expression.

When you are done, strive to have produced a picture that not only looks like a place from your reading, but has the mood and feeling of the place as well.

I would love to see the result of your exercise. Please include the title and author of the book you are reading along with it. Someone else might just be inspired by your creation to read the book.
