Some final work from my CORE II: Line/Mark/Observation students. The project: A Self-portrait in Time. Students were asked to:
Consider Self-Portrait as it relates to:
Your body or physical form
Your personal philosophy or values
How you identify
Consider Time as it relates to:
Light/ time of day
Deterioration (erasure) /growth
Place - a fixed point
Here's what they came up with:

Select 20 drawing commands from a list of 100. Create an accordion book that explores the integration of marks. The drawings should work in the narrative format of a book but also as a single work of art when the book is unfolded and laid flat.
Draw a gourd that matches your personality. Think about its posture. Fill the space around it. Use a full range of value.
Loving these drawings I made my students do based on Sol LeWitt's drawing commands. Directions included:
- Draw your partner's body on the paper
- Take a mark from an object in the room
- Attach your right arm to a pencil using tape. Make a portrait of your partner.
- And so on..
A highly recommended art ice-breaker!
