“Everyday” Theme

For this project we will focus on the mundane–objects and places that we see or pass everyday but perhaps don’t pay much attention to. Is there a corner of your bedroom or kitchen that you have never considered drawing but could make an interesting composition? Maybe the contents of a junk drawer or the interior of your bathroom. It could be your school lunch or the view from the back of your family car that you see everyday on your way to practice…
For this project we will use an “everyday” material–ballpoint pen. Or you could use india ink on a brown paper bag or corrugated cardboard. If you have other ideas for materials, feel free to run it by me.
