Description

MAXI-SKETCHING: Mixing Media and Memorabilia

Maximalism in art is all about excess and the idea that more is more. We will put this idea into practice by creating maxi-sketches on location. A maxi-sketch is a collage of multiple sketches of the same place organized on a single page. The “building block” sketches can have multiple viewpoints, different scales and perspectives, and little bits of memorabilia (ticket stubs, receipts, coffee rings, etc.) added in to fill the page. We will play with different ways to connect sketches, experiment with scale and line thickness, and let go of our preconceived notions about size and proportion.
