Why do we draw and does drawing still matter in the age of the internet and the digital image? This one-day course takes these questions as its starting point in order to explore this most basic of human activities. Through a range of dynamic drawing experiments with different processes and materials we will examine notions such as looking and recording, experimental mark-making, drawing as an interface between your body and the outside world, the benefits of slowness, and the physicality of tools and materials.
Whether you have prior art experience or not, this course will definitely change your perspective on what drawing can be in a fast-changing, image-saturated world. Drawing is so much more than lines on a page!
