We spend seven days a week observing and navigating our unique surroundings. Have you ever tried to capture these moments on paper? Hands-On: Drawing is the perfect opportunity to discover (or rediscover) drawing techniques. This month we are collaborating with two groups: the Art House Co-op and Veronica Lawlor, along with other members of Studio 1482. Partipants will be able to take part in both projects whether they are in the first or second session.

Inspired by maps and travelogues, the Art House Co-op will lead a lesson in making a representational or abstracted mixed media map. Be sure to learn more about their Sketchbook Project, which enables artists to create and share their work with people all over the world.

Veronica Lawlor and members of Studio 1482 will lead a lesson in observational drawing with a costumed model. Lawlor’s teaching technique is highlighted in her new book, One Drawing a Day, which encourages playful problem solving and experimentation.
