What do drawings mean to me? I really don’t know. The activity absorbs me. I forget everything else in a way that I don’t think happens with any other activity… John Berger
Drawing class…critique day. Assignment was challenging. I knew it would be, they knew it would be. We jumped in any way. And then they really realized the challenge. No turning back. All about the looking. To look at and draw a complex structure is not easy. To look at and decipher texture requires attention. Students learn to stay focused in a much more intense manner than previously.
I will say…this group has appeared to be very focused, in general. So much so that I have decided to share photos of the process instead of the end result. You can see how much they’re looking and how much they’re drawing.
For the record…end results are impressive. I know it and they know it. Class ended on a high note.
Spring break…looking won’t stop though…they’ve learned to see at a different level at this point…
