RAPID TEST INSTRUCTIONS FOR MAKING ART
BY ANYA
The following instructions should be completed within one hour. At the end of the hour, you would have made an artwork. *

  1. You will need some paper and colouring pens, pencils or paint.
  2. Choose a colour and create a background – one light enough to layer another colour upon.
  3. Pick another colour and draw a circle shape. Fill this with the same colour.
  4. Repeat this with a different colour.
  5. Draw another circle, in another colour. Fill this with lots of small lines to suggest a texture.
  6. Using white, draw a line – create a flow across the piece. You might make more lines. These do not have to be
    straight.
  7. Think of another shape and repeat this process.
  8. Repeat with different shapes and colours until you have filled the page.
  9. Use white or black to outline some of the shapes.
    *These instructions, and the performance of following them, might also be art.

Mixed media on collaged paper patchwork

Playing with the of instructions ‘recipe’ from art pedagogy yesterday. Similar elements in different formations. The instructions from the art lesson are similar to the procedures I use anyway in the making of the work. The borrowed set of procedures, laid over the procedures I had going on already, collaged paper patchwork, colour study, old work, new figurative study etc, produce a different result. Until the next ideas come along and shift the sequence in a different direction.

Recipe

Mixed media on collaged paper patchwork. Today playing with a set of painting workshop instructions by Maggie Stewart via @artpedagogy on Instagram. Not that far from my regular procedures of mixed methods and idioms. Enjoyed painting round the thrown paint.
