Escher (Acrostic)

ivonprefontaine:

We used Escher’s work in the classroom as part of exploring points of view and perspective. Students would design and draw their Escher-like diagram. I found that the students enjoyed the opportunities to be creative and explore in ways that art reveals the world to us.

Entwined sketches of Time’s sighing Muse

synchronous with Destiny’s voluptuous passions

chaos ….. balanced within each sepia pic

horizons ….. bound within a singular azimuth

escaping papyrus illusions ….. defined his Life

realities generously shared ….. using but pen and paper

About ivonprefontaine

I have been an educator for almost 20 years. Prior to that, I worked in private industry for 15 years, then returned to university to earn my education degree. For the past 11 years, I have been a co-creator of learning in a unique, progressive, alternative educational school of choice. Currently, I am engaged in a doctoral program at Gonzaga University in Spokane. A main theme in my learning there has been the roles of systems thinking, complexity theory, and organizational theory, and how they apply to education generally and the learning environment I share with students, parents, and colleagues.

  3. I love Escher! My brother is an artist and introduced me to his fine artwork. His stairs are the most ‘common’ or most viewed examples so glad you chose the hands… Fantastic post! Smiles, Robin

    • The students found his work interesting. They would discuss the different ways of seeing and understanding his work and try to draw their own Escher-like images.

      Thank you Robin.
