The Struggle


Depict how a character faces the “struggle between being an individual and being a member of the community.” You may choose Arnold Spirit from The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian or you may choose another character from this unit (including House on Mango Street).

Create a piece of artwork that expresses the particular struggle of that character. Incorporate details from his or her life and the messages they are given about who they are. How do they resolve that struggle or find hope? There is lots of room for creativity here. You can draw, paint, create an installation or use technological resources.

Explain your choices and explain the choices made  about the use of the elements of art and the principles of design.
