Today we reviewed the finished drawing and discussed what materials we used such as rice, coloured oil pastels, black paper and cut out cardboard shapes of cubes, circles, triangles. We also discussed what processes were used including a rubbing technique known as Frottage. Then, using small A3 black paper, we drew dots using white China pencils and then randomly folded the paper with the assistance of the teacher. We opened up the paper and drew white lines along the folded lines as best as we could. Then drew circles where the folded lines meet each other and coloured in the circles. We then discussed the differences in materials and processes used between the two drawings.
The group loved working in large-scale paper but next time, they would like to draw on a smaller scale. After viewing the smaller versions of the large drawing, there is much more variation in mark making and more interesting compositions.
Throughout the course, I couldn’t see the details of the pictures when the students were showing me their pictures close up to the camera so the teacher documented and emailed dates pictures during the workshops.
