From here on out it’s a party all the way from Thanksgiving to New Years are you ready for it? Sometimes it takes a little inspiration to get into the holiday spirit and begin expressing yourself, which is why we’re thrilled to present an extra special Group Spotlight for November 2014: artistic expression ♥!

767ab647a0f2f7ddIt’s pretty much a rule of thumb on ImageChef that creativity abounds, so of course the artistic expression ♥ group is overflowing with positive artsy energies. So what exactly is it that separates this group from other groups making it a cut above the rest? We think it’s the artists who contribute to make this thriving micro-community one of the best!

643cd4f172fe9cf6Moderated by Karenzhiita Sixx, an ImageChef user well known for her bright creations laced with thrillingly dark undertones, the artistic expression ♥ group follows suit.

Humans of all ages thrive on learning. For children and adults everywhere existence is enriched by education. Was your favorite class in school English? Do you have a passion for poetry that you can’t help but share with those around you? If you answered yes to either of these questions than ImageChefVisual Poetry App is just the tool to express your poetic impulses. While this versatile App has many uses, today we are going to explore how Visual Poetry can be used as a vehicle to teach Concrete Poetry to students of all ages.

Never heard of Concrete Poetry? Don’t fret, we’re more than happy to explain. Concrete Poetry is poetry in which the meaning of the poem is portrayed in a visual manner. For example, if you are writing a poem about a duck and your adjectives reference flying and wings, you could launch the Visual Poetry App to transform your poem into the shape of a duck, allowing the form the words take to be synonymous with your poem’s message. In the above example famous poet John Masefield’s verse The Wild Duck takes on the shape of a duck. For Concrete Poetry beginners good suggestions for content could be favorite animals or foods. Creating your own Concrete Poem using ImageChef’s Visual Poetry App is easy as 1,2,3…

1. The first step to creating your Concrete Poem in Visual Poetry is to choose the shape which best correlates to the poem’s content, for instance for the rhyme Star Light, Star Bright you can choose a star as your jumping off point.

2. Next check the Visual Poetry App’s library of shapes to see if the shape you would like to use is already there, if it’s not you can use our paintbrush tool to draw your shape with your finger. We selected a star shape to match our poem’s subject.

3. Then type in the verses that you would like to include in your Concrete Poem by clicking the bar beside the quill and ink icon. Once you have entered your text click the check mark to save. Voila! The next screen should display your finished Concrete poem. Now you can share the poem with your class, or your friends via social media. You could even print it out and hang it on your fridge.

Now it’s time to try it for yourself or with your favorite student or class! Remember, the Visual Poetry App is also a great tool to assist educators in teaching poetry.
