Figure drawing with scraps
Worked on this in my drawing class at Governor's School while my students were working on an hour pose. I found some discarded cardboard, charcoal, nupastel pieces, oil paint, and some ink so I thought I'd have some fun while my students cranked away. I set the model up with a mannequin from our storage closet, put a sport coat on him, and strapped a skull on him. I think this offered up a bit more of an interesting narrative for the students to work with that they maybe wouldn't have had with a single model.
