Below are selections of 'thinking drawings', made as we brainstormed Shakespeare. RIFFING on Shakespeare... Thinking through Drawing - brainstorming through drawing, we thought together about the Tempest. Trying to draw the Tempest led to questions about how it was, and about the story. What did people wear? What did the Italian noblemen wear? What did the Boatswain wear? What is a Boatswain? What do individual phrases mean? What were they saying to one another? What is the historical context?
