Exquisite Corpses

The Surrealist artists in Paris in the 1920’s played a game called Exquisite Corpse.  The first player would draw or paint or collage the top third of a person and then cover the work and pass it to a second artist who made the torso and then covered it.  The last player completed the body and only then was the entire work revealed.   We played the game in my art class last week.  At the end of class  it was really fun when the teacher unveiled  of all of our works!

I know this has nothing to do with the Estates of the Dearly Departed (except for the name) but you should try the game with your friends!
