As I was researching for this project, I watched the MoMa video on Kandinsky woodcuts with poetry and was reminded of haiga, the Japanese art form of combining haiku or haibun with illustration. As a former teacher of English and art, I  have always been interested in the combination of illustation and text to express an idea or concept.  I have decided to use this idea of combining text and illustration in my project. Kandinsky used the theme of "Klange" (sound) for his work, and I have decided to use the theme of the sounds of spring for my work which ties into the tradition of using seasons or nature expressed in haiga.
