Drawing Directive

Occasionally I assign a project that is a “have-to” It is unusual for me to do this so I try to give two class warnings ahead of time (to avoid a mutiny and help students to prepare.)
In honor of the new mask center, students donned masks and modeled for each other. The idea was that when faced with a friend in a Victorian half mask, the artist has to observe their subject very carefully. It is easier to look closely at a friend in a mask, and puts both model and artist at ease. It’s also very funny.
