This week I would like you to create your own version of either Caliban or Ariel from The Tempest. You can choose any way you like to create your character! 

 

Here are some ideas:

  • Drawing (I have attached a guide to drawing characters in a Manga style below). 
  • Transform yourself or a family member into the character with costume and face paint. 
  • Junk model
  • Collage
  • Paint

Or anything else you can think of! Let your imagination wander. Try to use your own character description from earlier in the week as a guide. If you like, you could create both characters to show the differences in their appearances, personalities and roles in the story.
