Imagine creating a visual world where symbols and imagery communicate a hidden meaning or story. In Imaginary Worlds, students will work to develop a catalog of symbols and meanings to be used to create narratives with depth. Many renaissance artists created symbolic art based upon myth and legion. As time has passed, many of the allegories in older paintings have been lost to the modern world. We’ll look at symbolism in art throughout history and the implied meanings and work on creating personal dictionaries. We will develop symbols and imagery to incorporate into future work, where the implied meanings may describe a much different narrative than the initial impression perceived.
