Drawing can function as a foundation, a preparatory element or an end product within artistic practice. The act of creating lines, moving a stylus, or exploring the inner and outer edges of form is an integral action that is shared within the human experience. In this Mini-Mentorship participants will consider and explore the breadth of drawing, and how artists interpret it both as a technical and conceptual practice. All artists interested in incorporating drawings into their work (in any medium) can take part. The mentorship format will include critique, presentations and creating. Participants will collectively re-imagine what a drawing is and what it can be.
