Mississhippi's Madness

A place to share my creative pursuits

First drawing class

Leave a comment

Tonight was my first drawing class. We were shown a technique, the name of which I can’t remember, which is to do with looking at an object, tracing its shape with your eyes, whilst drawing the shape onto paper without looking at what you are drawing. This is to get your right brain active. before we started this activity the teacher had us all draw a portrait of another person in the class, so that at the end of the course we can do it again and see the difference. That was a bit confronting but it will be interesting to see the outcome.

The course is for 8 weeks and my friend and I are going to look for something else to do, art wise, at the end of that time. I don’t think one night a week off is too much to ask.
