Fresh approaches to seeing: Creative Exercises to Spark Original Thinking

This activity uses a sharpie pen, 11” x 14” Bristol paper, and a mirror. In this video, you draw yourself using blind contour technique in a mirror. To look in the mirror and create a self portrait in indelible ink demands that you pay attention to every detail and some face to face with the reality of yourself. The blind contour drawing technique creates fluid, somewhat abstract outcomes that you would never produce if you were allowed to look down at your page.
