The Ghostbusters became women, Les Liaisons Dangereuses moved to modern day New York in Cruel Intentions, and the Montagues and Capulets became the Sharks and the Jets in West Side Story. We have been modernising classics for over a century, and now it's your turn.

Your task this week is to choose a piece of art, a story, a poem, or maybe even a sculpture that is at least one hundred (100) years old. You must modernise your chosen piece in whatever way you see fit. Whether you wish to sharpen an image or modernise the language, it is up to you. This being the Freestyle Prompt, let your creative juices flow and have fun with it.

A modern version of Raphael's School of Athens



I'm terrible at drawing people & have no idea why I chose a painting with so many.

FREESTYLE PROMPT

I tried to do a modern take on a Velasquez painting that is in the National Gallery in London. The painting, 'The Toilet of Venus', is commonly referred to as the Rokeby Venus. These days, rather than a mirror, Venus would be holding a mobile phone and taking a selfie which would be uploaded immediately to a social media platform.

Cupid is not holding the mirror as in the original. He is trying to get included in the background of the selfie. He gazes directly at the viewer, as if to dare us, "Don't look at her, look at me!"

i wanted to include a link to the original painting, but I wasn't sure if it would allowed at HEX as it is a rear view of a naked woman reclining on a bed. It is a very beautiful painting.

I know that painting well, it really is beautiful. But, yeah, maybe a little bit too bumcentric for HEX

Writing Prompt

Grandma liked to get her hands dirty
Finger painting with the kids
Red and blue and purple swirls,
Streaks of black and vivid white,
The sky was green, the trees were lilac,
A childlike vision
An old lady's dreams
of finger painting
when she was young
so many years ago

W R I T I N G . P R O M P T

Your sky is so blue
such a beautiful hue
the earth is so brown
it turns my frown upside down

Ehrmm... okay, I am sure you can do better than this, but you get the idea! For this month's writing prompt, in line with the celebrations of Earth Day 2019, we would like to see you write an ode about our planet. Do you love the colors found in nature? The magic of photosynthesis? The scurrying creatures and the Animal Kingdom at large? Tell us all about it!

We are challenging you to write a poem expressing your thoughts and feelings about and directed at Planet Earth!

Writing Prompt

Planet Earth
We have used you
And abused you
And now it’s time for us to soothe your weary bones

No more plastic rubbish
Thrown into the oceans

No more trees
cut down, depleting the rainforest

No more fossil fuels
polluting the atmosphere

We pledged it before -
That we would care
And yet, we failed

This time, we will try harder . . .
or it will be the last thing that we do

The earth is my home
It needs to be cared for
A pity it would be
to not see the beauty anymore
The beauty of a sunset
is beyond compare
Watch what we are doing
so it still will be there.
The animals that run
deserve to be respected and safe
Keep the Earth clean so they will
be cared for.

Compared to the previous ones, mine is not very good, but I tried! 😄


Earth

The only planet not named for a god
We are the only one with life
The only planet of blue and green
Locked in celestial strife

We swing through space not noticing
The damage that we may do
We’ve polluted our skies and our seas
And now we threaten space too.

So let us join in a united front
And stop this insanity
Let’s save our home planet Earth
And prove our humanity
