Be the executor of words! Make your own picture inspired by the text found around you! Did you notice that text is ... EVERYWHERE? You are reading some text even right now! Texts can be found on the posters that you see on the street. Artists also like to use this technique in their works. Let's look at some examples of such works together:


Pablo Picasso
Bottle of Vieux Marc, Glass, Guitar and Newspaper, 1913


Today we will collect and create our own text picture together. And reflect on how the word affects our perception of the image and the visual series affect the perception of the word. Let's imagine what you like the most from the text you can find in magazines and newspapers.

You will need:

  • Old magazines or newspapers (preferably colorful)
  • A4 paper
  • Scissors
  • Glue stick
  • Wax crayons or colored pencils


Let's get started!

1. Select the word or message that you would like to see in your picture


2. Draw a picture that you associate this word / thing with


3. On the paper, glue the piece that you cut from the magazine / newspaper



Your picture is ready!
