This week’s activity asked us to do an automatic drawing, which I thought was pretty interesting, because I have never done anything like this until this week. I know that this is a kind of surreal art, which we learned a bit about in the Art Talk this week. Here is a picture of me drawing.
I put my pencil on the paper and let it move by itself. At first, it stayed put and would not move a single bit, but after I waited a while, it did indeed start moving and my result didn’t look too bad.
Although it does look like something a child drew, it’s a result of my automatic drawing. This drawing is a type of surrealism, the subconscious state of mind. I think this week’s activity is one of the more simpler and interesting ones. I wouldn’t mind doing this again sometime.
