[livejournal.com profile] permetaform: heh, cousin's demanding that we dress up for her b-day party
[livejournal.com profile] permetaform: so I'm gonna wear my black wings, stick some feathers in my hair in fan-shape and carry around a sign saying "NEVERMORE"
[livejournal.com profile] permetaform: =D
[livejournal.com profile] lierdumoa: HA
[livejournal.com profile] permetaform: yeah, and then black clothes, which is easy for me
[livejournal.com profile] permetaform: 'cause black is my friend
[livejournal.com profile] lierdumoa: oh god, I'm just picturing you
[livejournal.com profile] lierdumoa: in your tiny voice
[livejournal.com profile] permetaform: heeeeee
[livejournal.com profile] permetaform: ^_^V
[livejournal.com profile] lierdumoa: saying "nevermore" over and over again
[livejournal.com profile] lierdumoa:like a goddamn pokemon
[livejournal.com profile] permetaform:
[livejournal.com profile] lierdumoa: I wish their had been a Nevermore pokemon
[livejournal.com profile] lierdumoa: in competition, it would just stare you into giving up
[livejournal.com profile] lierdumoa: YOUR SOUL
[livejournal.com profile] permetaform: XD
[livejournal.com profile] permetaform: indeeeeeed

Although, on second thought, it would probably be next to impossible to get Nevermore to return to its pokeball. Thing would probably, like, epoxy itself to your chamber door.

My Ecorche instructor (that being the class where we use oil based clay to sculpt the human body from the inside out) has an interesting way of teaching. There's very little instruction involved. He sculpts a form himself and maybe throws out one or two sentences explaining what he's doing, and then lets his students spend a few hours pretty much winging it. After a while he does a walkaround to each student and points out what's wrong/right with a given project. It feels less like he's giving a lesson and more like he's giving a beta.

Rather, it's not the teaching style I find so unique as that he is using this particular teaching style for a class that is so inherently technical. I'd expect it for, say, my welding class, where our projects are left completely to our imagination with the provision that they involve welding of some kind. But in terms of artistic anatomy, I took the drawing form of this class some semesters ago and half of each class session consisted of the intructor giving a lecture while his students took down notes.
