A project and exhibition by drawing students at Jefferson High School, Portland Community College and Portland State University, in Oregon USA. Students were given the following assignment: Using a selection of skills and techniques covered in class along with those you came with, design and draw a currency that represents your own value system. Come to class on November 26th with at least 50 pieces of currency. These could be individual drawings or photocopies of one drawing, or printouts of something you draw, scan and print.
On November 26th, 2014, in the afternoon Amy’s class from Jefferson came to Sandy’s class at PCC in room 221, and in the evening Sandy’s Drawing class joined Zach’s drawing class in room 285 Neuberger Hall at PSU for a currency viewing, exchange, conversation and celebration. Each student made 50 units of their own currency and went home with a unit of each class mate's currency.
