Description:

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.
