This November, bring your friends or family and create a blind contour of your loved ones in the Studio. Blind contour is the process of drawing while only looking at the subject (in this case, the other person’s face) and not looking at the paper as you draw. This process requires you to focus on looking while not worrying about the quality of the drawing. Take it to the next level and use your blind contouring skills to create a self-portrait!
