Drawing Through It: Observation, Movement, Cartoons Workshop Series

Saturday, March 6, 2021, 1:00pm - 3:00pm
Zoom - (link will be provided after application is reviewed and approved) Please complete the Drawing Through It Workshop Series application here.

Everyone has been carrying an excessive amount of stress this year! Let it out onto paper with this 3-part drawing workshop with UofC's DoVA alumna Jan Brugger. Students will be exposed to a number of traditional skills and experimental approaches to drawing through various demonstrations and activities with provided materials.

In Part-1, we will practice the fundamentals of drawing and seeing in our everyday lives. Part-2 will explore the relationship between drawing and movement (literally and figuratively). Students will then play a game and use generative exercises to create their own gag cartoons and humorous captions in Part-3.

Please note: this is a workshop series with three meetings (2/20, 2/27 and 3/6). Participants should plan on attending all workshop meetings.

Space in this workshop is limited. Registration will be approved on a first come first serve basis. Zoom link will be provided via email prior to the first workshop.

We will be coordinating on-campus materials distribution for these workshops. Registration will be accepted for students outside of Chicago, but the students will be responsible for purchasing the workshop materials on their own.
