The Merchant of Venice
In-class activity, Tue 16 Mar, due end of class
For this in-class assignment, you are asked to make a quick but expressive piece
of art based on The Merchant of Venice.
Task: Come up with a tableau—that is, a group of figures/ characters
representing a scene from the play—to portray a specific theme, feeling, or idea
from the text.
Use any media you like (pens, pencils, markers, paints, fabrics, found objects,
minifigures, photos, digital apps), though please note the time constraint: this is a
single-period activity to be turned in at the end of class.
