Work Time

A tableau vivant, or a live painting, provided Victorians, who had no television after all, with hours of entertainment.

Join a group as directed and together review the section of text that you have been assigned. Then do the following.

  • Choose a scene from within your section of text that you find meaningful, and work to reveal the feeling of the scene in your tableau .
  • Then assign roles and create a live painting—a tableau —to illustrate a scene from the reading.
