This example video was made in the exhibition Drawn from life, 2019.

You will need:

  • Pen/Pencil
  • Paper
  • Someone you live with


Step-by-step plan:

  1. Both of you grab a pen or pencil and sit facing each other.
  2. Look closely at each other’s faces, where the eyes are, how high the ears are and take a good look at each other’s hair.
  3. Get drawing! Put your pen on the paper and look at housemate. From now on, you’re not allowed to take your pen off the paper.

Extra challenge?

Grab another pencil and draw with two hands at the same time!draadportret voorbeeld
