Today we drew organic shapes, what Mark referred to as amorphic space. He asked us to start by drawing a sphere within a cube, which was kind of funny because he told some of us yesterday that it was an exercise he did with his undergrads for weeks that drove them crazy.
Was he trying to drive us crazy?
We only had 30 minutes of sphere insanity before pushing forward to mushroom and banana peppers. I was really proud of my mushrooms.
Mark went around an helped everyone individually. So there was varied guidance on cross hatching and contour, both of which I think I could receive some more instruction.
But no time!
We wrapped up by working with Magic Dough (i.e., Play-Doh), creating shapes that we then tried to draw. That was a bit of a stretch for most of us. But we did get to keep the dough.
