Portrait of Igor Stravinsky

This is becoming one of my favorite introduction exercises…

In this assignment students reproduce Pablo Picasso’s Portrait of Igor Stravinsky, a lesson from Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain.  To make the shift to Right Brain students to turn the image upside down and try to draw it,  from this perspective we tend to see the shapes and and curves and not the larger picture of what they represent. Students really seem to enjoy the challenge and are always amused when they turn their drawings right side up and see their funny looking portraits.
