The students were exposed to a wide variety of media from printmaking to encaustic to stop motion animation. We also practiced creative thinking exercises daily using surrealist parlor room games and drawing exercises that stretched the students' imaginations.
If you're looking for a book with many creative drawing exercises this is a great resource: Playing with Sketches by Whitney Sherman.
Below you can see some examples from our two weeks of learning how artists think, developing studio habits, and tackling new and exciting media. :)
