Project Description

Create 3-5 drawings using the art of subtraction.

ASSIGNMENT

Create a series of 3-5 drawings from one initial drawing. Use any drawing app of your choice (or even pencil and paper!) to erase parts of the initial drawing, add and abstract new shapes and words, and create new worlds on the page and screen. Your goal is to push your style, conventions, and creativity. Discover new ways of drawing.

DELIVERABLE

  • Share screengrabs or photographs of your 3-5 drawings.
  • You can also share a few words about your drawing process, insights you discovered, or questions you'd like to ask fellow students.
