Illustration Art & Creative Writing

Students from Wellesley Middle School’s 7th grade English Department, Cluster WMS, worked in teams of two to create illustrated books after reading The Greatest by Walter Dean Myers.

Students explored one of two questions in their work:

Is Muhammad Ali a legend?

Is it right to allow young men to risk their health and future for the prizes found in a boxing career?

Illustrators often make observational statements about contemporary society, sports and culture that go beyond caricature and visual representation.
