Instructor: Peggy Condon & Don Colley
Team Sketching will explore methods used to describe a complex urban environment. Each participant’s sketch will be one slice of a pie of overlapped drawings that convey a large continuous scene. Each artist will have the modest responsibility to frame and develop their adjacent view. Divide and conquer.
Participants will work on these basic skills:
- Tackle a scene and not be overwhelmed by the scale.
- Identify measurable vertical and horizontal units and show them in your drawing.
- Learn to divide and conquer a complex scene with the help of several partners.
- Use your sketches to estimate the location of people, vehicles, plants and architectural elements.
- Discover how others solve the same problems through their own personal aesthetics and approaches.
- A sketchbook 5” x 7” or 8½” x 11”
- 9×12 surface to sketch on
- A couple of binder clips, sketching tools
- A small ruler
- A sense of FUN could be one of the most important attributes bring and build on.
- Paper will be provided for final project
Instructors will send little “cheat sheets” to participants, along with references to websites that show examples of this workshop. Hint: one of those folks will be teaching your class.
Cheers! And we’ll see you this summer.
