And now the by-products of my class The Art of Silliness with Carla Sonheim, her highness the Squeen:) Not only did we have fun being silly and drawing randomly I got a button to boot. (I'm easy to please)
These are blob drawings, you scrape a blob of paint down and then try to find the image with what's presented. I think mine were a snail and a walrus.
Another drawing exercise we played with was called one liners. You had to draw a shape using only one continuous line. I like my elephant and even though my cats are whonky I like the childlike quality to the drawings. I can't remember if it was this exercise or another where we had to draw with our non-dominant hand. That was really interesting to do.
One of the last exercises we completed was to make a wire "drawing" of a bird and then flesh it out with fabric scrapes. I haven't given him a name yet but yesterday he learned how to stand on his own two "feet". He slightly bobbles around a bit when you first let go, but settles down and stands up straight:) He's wearing the button I got.
It really was a great class and good to have on the last day, since I was exhausted from staying up late to wrap up my earlier projects in anticipation of show and tell night.
