Scratch, Doodle, Draw: “Making a Mark”
April 4, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 6:00pm on Thursday, repeating until April 25, 2019
Drawing is so much more than laboriously building an image with charcoal or pencil. We can work with conte, magic markers, inks, ripped paper, and found objects. We can use our bodies, long dowels, cartridge paper, butcher paper, sidewalk surfaces, projections and topographical maps. Whatever we use, we can mark how we travel through this community – how we write about it, make a mark on it, design for it. Conceptual drawing, cursive writing, gesture, spatial mapping all become drawing practices we can explore. The results can range from self-portraiture, to building maps, to preparing stencils, or making personal visual zines.
