The Thinking Hand - Experiments in Drawing

Wednesdays, May 1, and 8, 2013 (2 sessions)
5:30-8:30 pm

Audience: Elementary and Secondary Educators

“First I think and then I draw my think” (anonymous child). Drawing is a visual language and an immediate expressive act. Drawings can be descriptive, narrative, analytical or emotional. They come from memory, direct observation, imagination, and collaboration. Participants in this workshop will delve into multiple aspects of contemporary drawing practice and learn how to engage students in the endless possibilities of mark making.  Drawings from the AGO’s collection will be highlighted. Participants will receive a substantial resource package as part of this session.
