Week 4: Art Activity – Automatic Drawing

This week’s art activity is automatic drawing.  I used three pastels; yellow, green, and black, and got some help my roommates for this project.  I taped a piece of paper on some cardboard and I sat in front of my roommate Cathy.  We held the pastels in our hands and put the pastels against the paper.  In the art activity page for this project it said to let our hands move on its own.  But we held the pastels over the paper for a while and our hands were not moving.  I think we might have pressed too hard against the paper.

After a bit we decided to just move our hands and see what it looks like. In the end my automatic drawing looks like this :


I think it looks kind of cool.  But if I had a choice I would have used different colors of pastels.
