Tasks / Avant-Caricature

Modern, conceptual art has found a home in the scholarly walls of museums - but will it do the same on a street corner? In the hands of the everyman, will modern non-objectivism be appreciated?

Your task is to find out - set up an easel, a chair, and a paper pad and offer your services as a modern caricature artist. Think Rothko, think Mondrian. (If a bright eyed child sits in front of you, draw a yellow circle, for example.)

Make sure you document (photograph) your adventure, record your customer's reactions, and show us the art you made.

If people actually decide to pay you for your "art" - give their money back (still give them the drawing) , and explain sf0 to them.

Since I'm not in any way a painter, I started this task from scratch, stalking the aisles of Blick's, feeling like a fraud. Paints! Brushes! Easel! Paper! Clips! Palette! Bucket! Armed with a bag full of brand new art supplies and my artsiest...
