A place to see what is happening in Fine Arts at Rocky Mountain School for the Gifted and Creative

Students in several art classes last week (Mandy’s , Mr. Martin’s, Mr. Bee’s, Kim’s Nancy’s) got a chance to try out an art-game I call “One Liners”. Students endured a “one liner” joke (“my daughter is SOOOOO skinny, she has to wear snow shoes in the shower so she won’t go down the drain!”) and then were shown a little book called Picasso’s One Liners , which features several one line drawings, and one line quotes.
The game goes like this: Each student in turn calls out a “thing”, and we all draw it, using just one line. When each player is done, they put down their pen. When everyone is done, we all hold up our drawings and ooh and aahh. Play passes to the right, until everyone gets a turn. The last move is to make a fold-over portfolio to hold all the drawings, and label it with one’s name…using just one line.
“If you know exactly what you are going to do, what’s the use of doing it?” ~ Picasso
