APR. 2 INK DRAWING: The Exquisite Corpse

"The Exquisite Corpse" is a Dadaist/ Surrealist game of chance. Ideally you have three or more players. The paper is divided into at least three sections-head, torso, legs; one section for every player. The first player draws the head and folds the paper over to conceal his or her image. Second player draws the torso and then conceals and so on and so on. The results are often surprising and always humorous juxtapositions of mismatched characters.
Before drawing we discussed the techniques of parallel hatching, cross-hatching, short hatch, stippling, scribble and patterns.
