Inside - Outside Drawings

Submitted by: Cindi Hiers
Title:
Inside-Outside

 

Description:

On one of the first days of class I hand out a 9x11 drawing paper and tell the students to make 2 compositions, one on each side. One side depicts their inside while the other side depicts their outside. I tell them any medium and any style is acceptable and encouraged, a critique will follow. I use this project so the students get used to being in the classroom and where the supplies are kept, they talk about their work, and they start working at a "quality" level right away. I assigned this in class on Thursday (don't see them Friday) and made it due the following class, which was Monday.
