Creative thinking project

One of the first assignments the freshman class did was for Sean Thorenson’s Digital Illustration class. Sean put together a series of lines and had the students fill in the rest.

The assignment isn’t about drawing, it’s about thinking. Filling in the gaps in otherwise meaningless lines is a great way to begin the creative process.

After a couple days of work the students hung their completed drawings and both sections of freshman critiqued them as a group. The three instructors did most of the talking, but that will change as the students start building relationships with each other.

Below are a few of the drawings – there are no great or poor pieces in an exercise like this, only ideas.
