Sketch and Design Club
The Sketch and Design Club was a self-initiated 4 day workshop for young teenagers where I collaborated with a graphic designer. The children learnt observational drawing in the morning and graphic design in the afternoon. Here are a few examples of the drawing activities.
Drawing Contour Games
Drawing on mirrors
drawing on acetate
Copying upside down (from Courbet) with charcoal to see shapes and light
city skylines: positive form and negative space
This activity was about teaching the children how form and space interlock and how forms can emerge by erasing. The urban skyline provided a view to explore how to see relative tonal values.
still lives on different coloured ground
This was a simple excercise but by changing the colour of the surface, colours applied took on a different aspect. The children were encouraged to see how forms interlocked and how volumes could be interpreted through the direction of the lines or brushstrokes.
