Today we did an “Exquisite Corpse” exercise with the class. Working with the images the students had previously chosen for inspiration in the past session, each student began working with a drawing of the Eagle Animodule; designed on it for two minutes; and then passed it to the right to the next student. We repeated this 12 times until each image was touched by every student.
When asked how they felt about the exercise, the students responded:
“For the first time in a while I didn’t have to think about my bills”
“I felt relaxed.”
“I felt creative.”
“I felt like I was in kindergarten.” When further asked if this was a good or a bad thing, the student response was “It was a great thing!”
