Speed Sketching Exercise #1

I brought 6 items to class today; and asked the students to sketch them one after another in quick succession. I used the songs in my phone to pace the time used for each sketch; using the time taken for two songs to play out (approximately 7 minutes) as the time limit to complete each sketch. Although the students initially grumbled about the shortness of the time - they were pleasantly surprised when they could finish the task quite easily.


  1. interesting.
    just wondering what songs you were playing :)

  2. songs in my phone, which I run to - fort minor, boston, MJ, gorrilaz - I think the young people liked them.

  3. cool. btw, nice sketches. they're lively.
