I’m now at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art in Dundee!
I’m in the 1st year General Course along with another 159 other sudents. There are 27 in the group I am in.
Today we started on the 1st project “The Object of Drawing and Painting”. The tutor set up a large installation with bicycle tyres, bicycle weels, bamboo canes, pieces of fabric, flags, bits of bikes- it’s huge.
We were instructed today and had to work in charcoal, graphite or conte. A lot of sharing and constuctive comments going on. One of the exercises was – we had to think of drawing without drawing the outline and drawing the space to create the object. This was new for me but I enjoyed having a go.
This project lasts for 4 days and along with all the development drawings we have to produce an A1 drawing and painting. I’ll post any interesting drawings!
