On and Beyond the Chair continues while students draw remotely in this new virtual learning version of the chair class.
Today the students begin a new fun and relaxing daily exercise “taking a line for a walk around their chair.” For the next two weeks students will spend only ten minutes each day drawing with a pen on a 8″ x 11″ sheet of paper.

The assignment encourages students to make quick decisions while continuously drawing a line. They must keep as small an interval as possible between drawing and looking at the chair. These drawings will also become a diary of reflections during this emotional time of social distancing.
The first class began with roller pen’s long line, hatches, and 3D hand sketches.
On and Beyond the Chair 2020 semester started with a “line” on a walk. In front of the charming Chantilly building, we drew the façade for only one minute, taking a line for a walk. The hand was not allowed to leave the paper while the eyes never leave the building!
