Title

Physical and Emotional Pain

Subject

Suffering

Description

In this unit, learners will discuss how suffering can be both mental and/or physical pain. We will discuss different emotions and how they can shape our memories. The learners will share personal stories in which suffering is felt on a mental, and/or physical level. Learners will discuss their own instance of suffering, and will create sequential thumbnail sketches expressing this particular memory. As a final assignment, each learner will choose one of his/her sketches in particular to create a suffering scene. The chosen scene must exemplify strong composition, climactic emotion, and subtractive drawing techniques. The students will share finished suffering scenes with an attached artist statement.
