Illustrating a Significant Word

How To Do It

  • Supplies: Paper and any drawing supplies you have (pen, pencils, markers, crayons, paints).
  • Think of a single meaningful and important word.
  • Draw large block letters of that word so that you fill the entire page.
  • Add symbols, doodles in and around the word with your art supplies.


  1. What made you choose that word? What is its significance to you?
  2. Have you always felt connected to this word/idea?
  3. How does this word/idea factor into your everyday life?
