Let’s take a line for a walk

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.

A line is a dot that went for a walk. – Paul Klee

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.
