DESCRIPTION

This series of workshops, introducing sketching in the environment of Garage, will acquaint the group with quick sketching techniques inside the Museum: the participants will learn about the means of visual expression used in graphic arts, the basics of perspective representation, and the rules of using color in a drawing.

Rather than merely a space exhibiting artworks, a museum also means elaborate architectural and interior design, bookshop and café, lectures and events, visitors and staff. These workshops will introduce the participants to the different elements the Museum is composed of and will help them to explore its environment through the process of drawing.

Each class includes a lecture on a particular subject, skills training exercises, a drawing session, and a group discussion of the final results.

Sketching workshop: Form and graphics in a museum

The opening meeting will feature an introduction to the graphic means of expression, such as point, line, spot, and stroke. The tutor will explain the key principles of making quick sketches and how to articulate the shapes of things, textures of surfaces, and the materiality of space, using lines and spots. During the practical block, the participants will concentrate on those objects and interior details at Garage that are not necessarily visible at first glance.
