Event description

Description

Often we see things that appeal to us—a piece of furtinture, a button, a watch on display—but we don’t sketch them because they may be a weak motif by themselves.

In this workshop we will learn strategies to combine many disparate elements into an interesting spread that tells the story of a place. We will practice this skill at the British Museum, where we assemble personal spreads out of the individual pieces on display. I will demonstrate how to stay loose when drawing and introduce 10 strategies to form a rich picture out of the individual elements. Participants will then select from the tools presented and draw their own 2 spreads. Half way through one-on-one feedback will help to solidify the approaches. In the end we will develop our work further and add a center of interest. For this we will use a dry medium or watercolor depending on what is allowed in or around the museum. We will share our work and discuss the results.

The workshop works well for students at all levels, because of its multi parallel nature. Some of the tools presented may be easier or harder to apply for individual student, but everyone can choose how much they would like to challenge themselves. The workshop is also largely independent of drawing ability, which makes it exciting for beginners and more seasoned sketchers interested in composition on the fly.

The workshop comes with a handout that illustrates every tool. Examples from the handout will be discussed.Get in touch (hoelleroliver@gmail.com) and I will send the handout to you so you get a better idea what will be covered.

I am lookin forward to sketching together,
-Oliver
