Event Description

'Mapping' in contemporary art refers to geography and might incorporate the use of actual maps, but mapping has also taken on more nuanced images and forms as artists map physical and digital environments, the movements of the body or an art object in space, and broader ideas such as psychogeographies and histories. In this one-day workshop you will discover a range of contemporary artistic practices engaging with notions of mapping and explore through hands-on drawing exercises mapping as a concept and visual structure. Projects will emphasize a mixed material approach allowing you to experiment with collage and a range of materials such as charcoal, graphite, thread, watercolors, wax, oil bars and pastels. Suitable for beginners.
