Group Still Life

Everyone bring a large object to draw (bigger than two-feet long in one direction). Everyone collaborates to assemble a still life of these big objects.

Start with a 20 minute drawing focused on one object, and make it feel monumental (use shadow for drama, and focus on filling the page – draw with vine charcoal, which is easy to erase; remember to pay attention to your process of building the drawing).

Next, do a 20-minute drawing, but rotate to a new spot around the still life.

Next, do a 20 minute drawing, but focus on texture (zoom in). Feel free to move your drawing station or easel closer to the still life.
