Instructor: Joyce Nojima

Sculptural drawing is a 5-day workshop meeting outdoors! We’ll dig into the materials and textures of drawing, emphasizing tactility, surface and dimensionality. Students will explore different methods of drawing that go beyond the conventions of pencil to paper, such as surface rubbings that explore texture (frottage), grattage- an additive and subtractive process of creating surfaces to incise and scrape, delivering surprising results, and chigiri-e, or a torn color paper inlaid into a panel or paper surface. The instructor will begin every class with a demonstration of different techniques. By engaging mark making, materials, process, and exploration, students can invigorate and re-discover drawing. This workshop creates a broad foundation for further drawing explorations. All levels welcome- no previous experience required!

We will meet in San Francisco, outdoor locations to be announced.
