The Drawing Project

Daily 15-minute drawings

Lucy’s launch email:

Hope to see you all at noon today for the Drawing Project launch. Bring a lunch and your hands and get ready to make something. I will provide a smattering of supplies. Feel free to bring your own. Here are the original “rules of the game”

::

The plan is that EVERY DAY we are each in the DO we make a quick “drawing”

Size: In proportion of 8.5×11 — either 11×17, 8.5×11, or 8.5×5.5

  1. make a relatively quick, simple, (but considered) “drawing”. Time limit: no more than 15 min.
  2. abstract, non-representational. (ish)
  3. made by hand primarily. (ish)
  4. choose ONE WORD from a list provided (below)

Lets define drawing as mark-making, using materials that are primarily analog in nature.

At the end of summer I want to make a book of the “drawings”.

Anyone who wants to help make the book would be welcome.

I hope to collect 60–80 drawings by the end of the summer we could even have a show.
