We have been talking about collaboration and the power of a group of people set towards a similar goal in my drawing class. This has coincided with the start of our linocut unit so as a preliminary exercise I have the students cutting and printing as many cows as possible over the next couple of days. Below is the beginning of the herd and hopefully the beginnings of a few printmakers too;)
Students were given almost no direction about the cows. The only rule has been that during class they couldn't look at any kind of cow reference.
