There are two opportunities to attend the workshop: Saturday, April 16. 11:30am-1:30pm and Sunday April 17. 11:30am-1:30pm.

Drawing as a Process for Visual Thinking @ Pioneer Works, Brooklyn
Posted on 08/14 at 03:59 PM
I will be teaching an 8 session drawing course at Pioneer Works! October 18 - December 13, 2014.
Drawing as a Process for Visual Thinking is a continued exploration of an experimental drawing curriculum I’ve developed at Cooper Union and Rhode Island School of Design over the past nine years. Though the exercises were first conceived with art students and artists in mind, I am excited to open up this class to non-artists for the first time. It is my hope that the scope of these drawing experiments and investigations will be greatly expanded with the inclusion of individuals who bring expertise from diverse disciplines.
A Supercharged Collaborative Learning and Drawing Experience!
