features icon(LAKEWOOD RANCH FL)- Character is defined by the mental and moral qualities of an individual.  The LRHS Design and Costume class this semester created a complete character and personality out of an inanimate object.

Student were given three days to complete a full sketch of the character created. Some of the objects such as a pair of white gloves, brown bulky glasses, a deep green beanie hat.

“This (assignment) actually a personal favorite of mine, because it really gives the students an opportunity to be creative,” said LRHS LRHS  drama director Roxane Caravan. “We have been doing this project for only two years, and every year its different objects.”

Each character created gets a personality as well. After the student finish their final sketch, they fill out a personality paper answering questions about their hopes, dreams, jobs, life goals.

“I’m happy about how this project turned out because in this class we don’t stop trying to bring out the creativity, “ Caravan said.

Junior Alicia Herbert said, “I feel that this assignment gave us an opportunity to be really creative and use our imagination to create a character.”
