New Year - New Art

Happy New Year. One of the tasks I give my beginning drawing class at the end of the semester involves creating a cubist drawing of a still life. A fun project that moves them away from representational realism to abstraction where flatness mingles with the illusion of 3D and forms are plastic. I usually do a demo drawing and it brings me back to my love of collage and Cubist imagery. My drawing students also do a self portrait which I always enjoy. All three drawings were done this year.
