Week 5 began using black acrylic paint with an improvised brayer to add paint with strokes.
This resulted in some very interesting results that were used as a starting point for drawing.
Working collaboratively, participants created some very interesting drawings.
One of the problems to work through was to add to what another participant had begun or to ignore what they had done.
Creative exercises are just that….a project meant to expand boundaries of thinking and doing.
Craziness leads to fun which leads to new insights into the personal creative journey.
We ended the session with some quick ink wash images.
These quick washes changed up the creative flow of the evening.
Artist Paul Klee expresses the idea of drawing as “taking a line for a walk”. Participants learned that making a drawing is first about communicating with yourself as they went for a walk this evening in the drawing lab.
