Cécile McLorin Salvant is a visual artist and Grammy Award-winning jazz singer, and she shares with us an art assignment. Create your own Theme and Variation Cut-Out by following the instructions below. And check out Prideland on PBS Voices!:

1. Draw a simple outline of a human body
2. Do this until you find one you really like
3. Then draw variations of that outline playing with the limbs and proportions
4. Copy your favorite four outlines to stiff paper or cardboard
5. Cut them out, tape a piece of string to them, and hang wherever you like
