The Art of Expression
Today I have been making cartoonish drawings of Primary Emotions.
A Neutral Face
Sad and Happy Angry and Disgusted Surprised and Fearful
These I intend to use next week for some online teaching, as I give a demo on mask-making to prop. making students. I would like to get them active and not just give a one sided lecture. I use these ideas when teaching mask performance skills so why not for makers. I hope it will make it more personal for them as they examine their own faces and feel what muscles they use to make these extreme expressions.
