A tableau is when you pose your body and freeze like a statue to tell a story. Today we’ll be making tableaux (frozen pictures) of different types of sport. Don’t forget to stretch before you try this at home!
STEP ONE: Brainstorm your favourite types of sport and athletes. Can you find any images or videos of them in action? How do they move their body?
STEP TWO: Select one sport and pose your body like you’re an athlete in the middle of action. What action are you choosing? Think about how you are positioning your head, arms, body, legs, and feet. Where are you looking? What does your face look like?
STEP THREE: Stay in position, snap a picture, and get a friend or parent to guess what sport you are playing.
