#Tuesday – Let’s #Reconnect in the #Studio

Learn To Draw: “Drawing is more than a tool for rendering and capturing likenesses. It is a language, with its own syntax, grammar, and urgency. Learning to draw is about learning to see. In this way, it is a metaphor for all art activity. Whatever its form, drawing transforms perception and thought into image and teaches us how to think with our eyes.”

Tomorrow we are making a quick drawing of you using the tools we have learned in Adobe Illustrator. Think about the tools that you were very good at over the past few days and be ready to make a self  portrait very VERY quickly (an exercise in RUSHING through a project as well as an exercise in using your knowledge against a deadline).
