Event description

Description

Draw itOUT Workshop: A workshop that investigates the physicality of (or ideas of physicality and) drawing. Using both age-old and new-media- digital techniques to record (draw) a personal experience, and to then bring that personal experience into a collective experience/map/drawing/final outcome. This workshop will use note-taking and sketch-drawing, a digital map-recording app, and low-fi assemblage.

This workshop focuses on the stimulated action of drawing through movement of the body. With group walks, participants will collect and make informal drawings. The body’s simple movements are the motor to “draw out,” or move, to pull internal dialogues, reflections, and images in each person within the particular span of a day. Usually when moving the body, thoughts, and images that arise are very different from when the body is still. There is a theme of action and also interaction with daily environments we move through that propels this workshop. Sketches, words, lines, a map, and gathered pictures are brought together into one large collective drawing.
