A character sketch should be a short story describing in detail one of the characters in the painting. You should have been assigned one in Ms. Brenda’s class. Erica and Lina, just pick one character.

Ask yourself the following questions:

  • Who is this person?

  • Why are they there?

  • What is their job?

  • What are their interests?

You should try to focus on the mood, or emotion the character exudes. How do they feel and WHY?

Once you answer these questions for yourself, you can write a short story (Short! Just a page - no stress!) about YOUR character.

 Answer the questions and write a story about this woman. (Which one of you is writing about her?)
