Ever heard of Exquisite Corpse? It’s an old Surrealist game where you draw a portion of a picture, obscure what you’ve drawn by folding the paper, then hand off the paper to others to continue and finish the drawing where you’ve left off. It’s a fun old exercise I first learned about 15 years ago in art school and and one that’s remained a favorite game of mine.

I was doing some spring summer cleaning this weekend and came across a big stack of Exquisite Corpse drawings that I’ve collected over the years from playing the game with friends at different parties and gatherings.

I love this exercise not only as a game, but as a great warmup tool for collaboration and thinking openly and creatively. You don’t have to be a world-renowned artist to play the game and have fun.
