This is the official blog for the unofficial (and highly informal) Linework Workshop.
This workshop will be held on Monday nights from 7-10 pm in room 601 of the 623 S. Wabash building of Columbia College, starting January 28 and ending May 13.
This is a non-credit, experimental affair; thus, participation in whole or in part is wholly voluntary. Make of the workshop what you will. All Linework contributors are welcome.
We'll draw, mostly, but the workshop will likely evolve and mutate: we may also work on "crafts" projects, have open studio time, or perhaps have anonymous critiques. We'll decide democratically, at the end of each week's session, what we'll work on during the following week. The blog will be updated with any pertinent info, in case there are specific tools or materials needed.
We'll document the workshop as it progresses, via this blog (and we can vote on whether or not we want the blog to be private or public). My student George Burnett will act as the documentarian, facilitator, and referee.
Week 1 will consist of some cartooning exercises. Lots and lots of sketching. Bring whatever paper and tools you like.
If you have ideas for exercises or projects, please email ibrunetti at colum dot edu. We are trying to build a database of possibilities.
