Collaborative Drawing

Sharing a drawing with friends requires a lot of trust, but ultimately it helps artists to open up their expectations of what’s possible. To play Exquisite Corpse all you need is something to draw on and something to draw with. Each person takes a turn collaborating on a larger drawing, without knowing what was drawn before them. This technique was invented by the Surrealists as a game among friends, but quickly evolved into a source of inspiration.

What else?
Exquisite Corpse started as a game of chance, and with that game you’re bound to find coincidences. Look for similar symbols, lines, and shapes among the group. Record your data, and find answers to your statistical questions. More curriculum connectors can be found here.
