Quilting Time by Romare Bearden. What did he do to create this work instead of cutting one figure from a magazine? What can you do that is similar?

How can you remember to use these techniques once you have left this classroom? What might the use of these new skills do for you outside of the classroom?


Advanced Drawing: Figure Drawing – Today we will be working from GESTURE Drawings based on your classmates and your live modeling skills. Long drawings beginning from 5 minutes and finally getting to 30 seconds. We will NOT be switching pages today. We will be allowing the drawings to overlap and continue to develop into a composition that is ABSTRACT and FIGURATIVE.
