Last Friday, we explored a new kind of poetry in class: Newspaper Black-out Poetry. This is where we used an online newspaper article to create Found Poetry, which is creating a short poem from a piece of writing, such as a poster or magazine. I think that this was quite a fun task to do, as we got to enforce our knowledge of Found Poetry into a new concept! Here is my first try at Newspaper Black-out Poetry:
To do this, we used an application called "Brushes". It allows you to create many styles of paintings and strokes digitally! How we made this piece was by taking a screenshot of an online newspaper article and importing it into Brushes. Then, we used black "markers" to circle the words we wanted and colour out all the words that we didn't want. It's simple and fun to do as well!
