100 Drawings (ARC4118.01)

Donald Sherefkin

Using a fixed format of a 9″ x 9″ sheet, we will do a drawing each day of the term in a process which will parallel Georges Perec’s Life: A User’s Manual. Each drawing will have a set of constraints from which the student must extrapolate an image. A narrative will gradually be built through the accumulation of evidence. A variety of media, techniques and strategies will be explored, as well as strategies of invention and methodologies of ordering.


Learning Outcomes:
Translation of text into image
Learn multiple drawing methods
Develop creative responses to multiple constraints
Seeing how other disciplines creatively use constraints
