Weekly Challenge, 3rd September – Crap Faces .
This week’s challenge is for people who tell themselves they cannot draw, or those who can draw but are trapped in one style, or anyone else who wants to play with a paradoxical way of stretching your artistic abilities. It is set by artist Steve Chapman and is inspired by his new book – 100 Crap Faces. We also thought the challenge could act as a reminder that just because it’s the first week back after summer and the beginning of September – we shouldn’t stop having fun! Take the edge off this week and give it a try… (you could also win one of Steve’s books! Read on to learn more).
Draw a series of crap faces! Create a 3 x 3 grid on a piece of paper to create 9 boxes. In each box intentionally draw a crap face, a picture that you do not think is any good. Once you have finished, look back at your pictures and score them. If you really, really don’t like them then mark them as CRAP. If, however, you accidentally draw one that you like, even a little bit, you must mark it as NOT CRAP. Have a go and share!
