'Show, don't tell' - creative writing, Chekhov-style.

Date: 12th Mar 2018 @ 5:53pm

Anton Chekhov was a famous writer of plays and short-stories.

He was born in Russia in 1860 and died in 1904.

We have used one of his most well-known sayings to make our own creative writing more powerful and full of images …

He said, 'Don't tell me the moon is shining; show me the glint of light on broken glass.'

To display some of our own Chekhov-inspired sayings, we made collage papers - we experimented with water-colour paint and 'brusho' ink powder and liquid on wet paper to make all sorts of surprising effects, sometimes adding rice or salt or scrunched cling-film as well.

We hope you enjoy our gallery of words and colours!
