• Modernism lecture continued: today we're going to continue discussing the Modernist movement in the Fine Arts, and discuss some of their techniques and strategies for conveying internal emotion and concepts. It will help inform our class exercises today (see below). 
  • In class exercises:
    • Drawing From Memory: Recall a moment in your life that you’ll never forget
      Take 20 minutes to draw it in your sketchpad, or on the computer, or in any medium you feel comfortable.
    • Making an Event Modern: Using the rules of abstraction, distortion, angles, rectilinear shapes, primary colors, and/or dark tonal qualities found in the films and art we just viewed, redraw the moment you drew in the beginning of class. Use the methods we’ve learned from the Modernists to express the emotions you were feeling.
