Study the painting “I and the Village” (1911). In your page of notes, specifically describe how Chagall arranged line, color, and space to evoke a lyrical, dream-like scene. What artistic devices (composition, perspective, juxtaposition) do you observe in Chagall’s many works that demonstrate poetic imagination?

In preparation for the next studio project, spend 1 hour developing a series of sketchbook drawings inspired by Chagall’s imagery. Your sketches should feature characters, musical instruments, and settings from the story “Peter and the Wolf.”
