I've continued the "memory picture" exercise following picture studies. (Mentioned in an earlier post.) It's going well--I feel like it's a great way to solidify the details of a painting in their minds--to internalize it. The only thing is, it's a bit more time-consuming than I thought. The students are so intent on reproducing the image it could easily take them 30 min....(I also think/hope their speed will increase as they get used to doing the sketches. ) In order to have class time for projects, I'm thinking I'll have them do memory pictures every other picture study.
