Dance, Move, and Draw!

For Drawing studio, We were told to bring every medium we own into class so we could have numerous options for our painting. For five classes we had to paint on a 21x40 Lintex paper. My teacher put on a different radio station everyday to give us different varieties of feelings.
At first I was nervous about this project because, I have always hated doing abstract art. I have never been able to do it successfully. However, I never had music to listen to while working. It all made sense to listen to the music and make drawing/painting movements from there on.
I mainly stuck to acrylic paint and soft pastel. With side materials like: sand paper, painters tape, and hemp. Here is what I came up with...
Day 1
Day 2
Day 3
Day 4
Day 5 Final
After doing this project, I learned to make layers, and windows to see back through the layers. I was told to not fall in love with anything while I was working. Sooner or later it will be covered up!


  1. Question of the day: What kind of music influenced each piece!?

  2. well we listened to different radio stations each day so it ranged from lady gaga to fleet foxes haha. Yes I requested Fleet Foxes!!!
