Programs for Children
Art Club – April
Welcome to Art Club online – where the Incinerator Gallery comes to you.
Our art educator Gina Panebianco invites you to learn about the history of portraiture from the comfort of your own home.
Use the hashtag #IncineratorArtClub so everyone can share and support each other, just as we do during the program at Incinerator Gallery.
Principles for the development of a complete mind: Study the science of art. Study the art of science. Develop your senses, especially learn how to see. Realise that everything connects to everything else.
Leonardo da Vinci 1452—1519
Rapid Contour Line Self-portraits
You will need:
- paper or card
- something to draw with; pen, biro, pencil
- mirror or camera
- comfortable space to draw
- an open heart and mind
Take a photo of yourself on your mobile phone or use a mirror.
Look at your selfie or mirror image closely for a minute – really focus on your face, bows, eyes, nose.. See the shapes.
Draw as fast as you can using one, long continuous line to record the details on your face.
Do not look at your paper. Do not lift your pen off the paper until you are finished. This will mean there are overlapping lines all over your drawing and face.
