Materials Needed

Materials needed for Drawing Challenge 17 August

Rule based drawing – the same every time but different.

“Hi everyone.

Next week we are going to be doing some simple rule-based drawings.

You will have no control over the rules but will have complete control over the moment-to-moment intuitive decision making – resulting in many different interpretations of the same thing by each of you. Rules and instructions will be revealed on the 17th August!

You will need some basic materials:

– Template (optional) please download from here

– Variety of pens and pencils (any colours you like)

– Variety of paper (white, coloured, patterned etc)

– Ruler

– Set of compasses or a selection of circular things to draw around

– Objects with interesting shapes you can draw around (can be literally anything)”

The Challenge: Rule Based Drawing

“Hello everyone, its Kirsty here.

For this weeks drawing challenge we are going to be creating some simple rule-based drawings.

You will have no control over the rules but will have complete control over the moment-to-moment intuitive decision making.  This will hopefully result in many different interpretations of the same thing.

You can use one of the templates provided or draw your own; I like lots of little boxes and circles but you can make them bigger if you prefer.  Use any drawing materials or paper in any colour you like.

Rules:

  1. Choose your background.
  2. Draw up to three different lines
  3. Draw up to three circles (or parts of a circle)

Or.

  1. Choose you background
  2. Draw up to three different lines
  3. Draw round up to three different shapes (or parts of the shape)

Once you have mastered the rules you can start to break and re-interpret them!  Add coloured sections, collage, layer drawings, trace them…”

Please share what you have made using #freedrawingschool or by emailing them to volunteer@hospitalfield.org.uk
