This activity builds off of various line drawings exercises I do in class, including Grids & Gestures, along with the use of lines from Tristram Shandy & Vonnegut’s Shape of Stories (see the video of Vonnegut online). For your “story line”, think of an arc of your life – either recent months or your whole life, and make a line that represents your experiences. Interpret as you wish. See my main Education page here.

I put a few excerpts from my slides here – but the more full explanation can be found here storyline activity instructions

My sample slides are here – can see a little bit of how I set it up and student examples on PDF here storyline activity instructions
