Body Alphabet Messages

During the pandemic, we are hearing and seeing tragic stories everywhere. Our news channels and social media are wrapped in negativity. Many people are separated from their support systems and are finding it hard to stay positive during the pandemic. This prompt is here to spread messages of encouragement and kindness to friends, families and communities. 

With your bodies, you will create letter shapes that will form messages to send out to others. It’s sure to bring a smile to the reciever and will encourage one another to look forward to the future.

  1. Write out a message you would like to say on a piece of paper. 
  2. Make a plan of how you will tackle each letter. If you are working with a group of people to create your final piece, you should each decide which letter(s) each person will do.
  3. Use any camera you have to photograph yourself making the shape of each letter for your message.  Make sure your full body is visible.  Use different backgrounds for each letter to make it fun!  
  4. Put all your letters together. You can print them out and physically collage them together OR you can use a free digital software or app OR you can make a slideshow. Get creative with the presentation! 
  5. Send out the final piece to someone! Or a few people!
  6. Share what you made with us using the submission form at the top of this page!
