  • NEW Drawing Assignment: Continuous Contour Line Drawing
    Due Tuesday. March 6th
    A Continuous Contour Line Drawing is an exercise to help us focus on the line. The idea here is to create a drawing where you never lift your drawing utensil from the paper. I like to use a pen on this one to help me resist the urge of erasing mistakes. If you have never done this exercise you may find your drawings odd and “imperfect” but that is what makes them beautiful. Also focus on looking at what you are drawing as much as the drawing itself and do not stop moving your hand when you look up.

  • LAST WEEK’S Drawing Assignment due, today Tuesday Feb. 20th:  Non-dominant Hand Give your non-dominant hand a chance to shine. Draw three objects from observation. Control is not always a good thing and, unless you are ambidextrous, this exercise will require you to give up much of your learned control. By drawing with your non-dominant hand you are giving yourself the opportunity to be more free with your line. During this exercise you should notice your line becoming more loose and fluid.
