Friendship Sloop by Rockland Breakwater lighthouse, student display, adult art class, 8/20/18

Class had some messing around with torn paper triangles and coloring the background as warm up drawing - a form of using negative shapes.

Final drawings students used one of my paintings for reference. They were to do a continuous line drawing first, then color as desired.

All instructions give rise to choices or decisions to make. I can often be hopelessly vague, since I have rarely figured out the exact steps. None of us ever knows just how something 'should' be done. Every choice leads to an experience or learning. The so called 'wrong' answer or choice can so often lead to other possibilities. There is always such a richness of possibility. One always dances a line between a known result and a surprise result.
