The exercise was in 4 stages. Each stage we were told what to draw... in 5 MINUTES
Phase 1 man woman man+woman
Phase 2 bird ball bird+ball
Phase 3 chair flame chair+flame
Phase 4 man+chair+bird
All drawn from absolutely no references, from our heads. .One other instruction was to get the work to a finished stage. You can well imagine the groans.... I worked first on 100x70 cm cutting board with a charcoal stick and then on newsprint paper!. After each phase we turned our easels around and Heleni gave a quick critique of our works, Some were pretty amazing. Even those that had non drawing skills came through with flying colors.... because mainly it was a question of "concept" more than of the actual subject,
I not going to post all the images..... the first phase was was pretty good....then man less than the other two...
Second phase was a flop for me... and for most the ball the biggest challenge for most and only a very few got out of the box for this,,,
Phase 3 Only my chair went well, flame was really nothing special as was chair+flame.... flame was another problem for most.
Phase 5 worked out fairly well...
Bottom line: It was a very productive and tiring art session but really worth the efforts Kudos to Heleni!!!!
Next creative class in a month will be with COLOR
