This is the first project I was given by my favourite, High School, art teacher… Or my own version of it anyway. The learners are given a piece of paper with one random thing drawn at the top and a completely different thing at the bottom. My teacher told us to “Take our mind on a walk” as we join the two disparate images into one, cohesive whole. We were encouraged to think differently! I prepared this page for an extra art class I give. In this one, I attempted to join the to halves in a way that is meaningful to me. 🙂
I did this to prepare for a grade 6 class. We made a head around a balloon, building on for a chin and nose etc. We then painted the following lesson. I’m still not 100% sure what we’ll do with it then. Maybe a puppet? Though not exactly sure how to do it simply. Might challenge the kids (and myself) and see what we can come up with!
I have had one or two off putting episodes while on a urinal but this was more of a creativity challenge. I challenged myself to think of at least 10! I made that and more. 😀
I apologize to anyone who might be offended by any of these.
Woke up with this random image in my head and I had to get it down! Did this in Photoshop.
The urge took me again the other day…
I was at home with my fiance. We had no plans (real plans anyway), so I did it.
For some reason I felt like doing some something a little different, like something I had never tried before. I grabbed a cotton wool pad from my bottom draw and poured some water into my little container with ink.
Ever so tenderly dipping the piece of cotton into the ink, I began to draw…
