Put yourself in another artist’s shoes!
Make a process that belongs to you
Choose a painting (or a drawing as well) that is not yours, from any period. Imagine that you are that artist, while you are painting it.
>Objective: to give an account of the process.
-novel / storytelling
-scheme / graphic -diary -…
>Support: 4 sheets DIN-A4 The structure (free) that fits the limitations of having 4 sheets (if someone uses a sheet on both sides it should make sense, for example). These papers are taken as a basis for the exercise and the proposal should happen in them.
>Sharing session: For the presentation, you must send the painting (or the drawing) on which you have inspired yourself to the following mail: firstname.lastname@example.org The following day, Tuesday 27th February, during the seminar we will share all your exercises.
