WEEK 3 Part 4: Lisa Larson
In this part, we’ll take a look at the more organic human figure sculptures by Lisa.
Playing on what we did in Part 3, use a bingo marker again to freely draw a simple human shape. Have the figures arms stretched out.
Your sculpting in two-dimension actually.
Draw a circle or oval in between the hands.
Draw (“etch”) human details on the “sculpture” with Lisa Larson in mind.
And write. On a different page. Gibberish really. But looking at the image you just made. Wordplay where you simply write each word as they come to mind. DO NOT STOP.
Close your eyes. Turn your journal upside down. Sit still for a minute. Wave your hand in the air; then point to the page of words.
What’s the word your finger lands on? Mine is BREATH.
Write it in the bubble.
You don’t have a soul. You are a Soul. You have a body.
– C. S. Lewis
