Creative Thinking Prompt: Oxymorons
Oxymorons are figures of speech that put together at least two apparently contradictory terms to form a phrase. The phrase “”I am busy doing nothing” is an oxymoron phrase because busy and nothing have completely opposite meanings.
Make a list of oxymorons. Here are some to get started.
Creative Thinking Prompt: From your list of oxymorons pick five to illustrate. Really exaggerate features to add humor to your picture.
Think Deeper: Invent a few of your own oxymorons.
