Wait this is so cool! I had Deb as a teacher for the 2 drawing classes I took at Northwestern and she was fab! Her classes were so creatively challenging it used to frustrate the crap out of me but delight me at the same time.
[One time we had an assignment to make a drawing, put the drawing through a process of some sort, and then make another drawing documenting the process. So I drew a picture of a cupcake, tore the picture into little pieces, baked the pieces into a batch of actual cupcakes, and drew the recipe out, advertising the paper cupcakes as a diet aid. It was all ranty and satirical and I miss assignments like that so much man.]
I had not heard of this art assignment thing but I am v. interested!
It’s time for another installment of my 2014 weekly journals! If any of you are also doing a project like this, let me know because I’d love to see it!
