DRAWING IN DESIGN WORKSHOP
APRIL 22 – 24, 2022
Drawing offers a practice for thinking and an important mode of communicating ideas in design. Since 2016 the Department of Landscape Architecture, in collaboration with our professional partners, has convened a quarterly series of public lectures and weekend workshops for students that focus on representation in design.
This quarter we will be led by Milenko Matanovic (https://www.milenko-art.com)
We will draw to keep our minds, eyes, and hands coordinated. We will render the first line, then the second line, and so on. We will try to capture our admirations for what enchants us. We will start with an open mind, release expectations, remember the qualities we care about, and take one step at a time. I hope that you will find joy and grow trust.
The workshop will convene the weekend of April 22-24. To enroll in this workshop you must be available for the entire weekend, from 5:00 pm on Friday, April 22 to 1:30 pm Sunday, April 24, 2022.
