3 Steps: How to Draw an Eye

Graphite on paper  

(Continued from yesterday’s post)

…It all began with a pair of scissors. 

In preparation for CognEYEzant’s booth at Friday Night Live, I packed extra scissors. My past is one full of outreach events and my past has taught me to be prepared and being prepared often means having extra scissors.  Little did I know that if it weren’t for the scissors, I wouldn’t be making an announcement tomorrow. 

The Crooked Tree Arts Center (CTAC)’s booth was close to mine, and they had forgotten their scissors. Kristi Wodek, the Education and Outreach Director, asked to borrow mine. And as the evening wore on, as the midsummer sun beat down, the borrowing led to conversation.

 In the street full of enthusiastic people, we began to talk. We talked about CognEYEzant, about sharing art and education. Then we talked about CTAC and the future, ideas and potentials. Kristi recently reflected on our conversation, “[Nadia is] creative, focused and super energetic. I knew instantly that I needed to get her involved at Crooked Tree Arts Center.”

Want to know if I did get involved with CTAC? You’ll just have to wait and see, I’ll tell you everything tomorrow.

In the meantime, I’ll share with you a three-step process I devised for drawing an eye. Today’s is visual and leaves room for your creativity to go wild. And if you are new to the drawing world, this one’s for you:

I’ll leave you with one hint for tomorrow’s announcement: you are looking right at it…

 (If you take the challenge and draw an eye, go ahead, share it. You can share it with me via email nadiacdm(dot)projects(at)gmail(dot)com or on social media using #cogneyezant. I can wait to see what you’ve made.)
