Draw It With Your Eyes Closed: The Art of the Art AssignmentBy Norm Paris
Draw It With Your Eyes Closed: The Art of the Art Assignment, edited and published by Paper Monument, is a complex constellation of around 90 contributions of accounts by professors and teachers, many of whom are artists. For all of the philosophical and pedagogical discussions that arise in Draw It With Your Eyes Closed, its humanistic warmth is perhaps the most revelatory and comedic aspect of this collection.
