Folktale Week 2019
Posted 10 months ago and submitted by Lisa Wee | Share link:

I just participated and completed Folktale Week, which spanned from Nov 4-10,2019. I chose the story of Hansel and Gretel using Gretel as the main character and Hansel as a boy with disabilities.

Hansel and Gretel is a tale that is relevant today because it is a tale that brings to light the issue of child abandonment. Being a girl or having disabilities are some of the contributing factors to children abandonment.

Throughout the week, I created seven illustrations using the seven prompts given:
1) Home
2) Secret
3) Path
4) Smoke
5) Darkness
6) Key
7) Crown

to highlight the issues. I love the challenges of creating scenes with the prompts. I wanted to experiment and see how the story could come together as a whole and ending with prompt seven.
