Everyone A Maker: Think BIG, Draw BIG
Claire WT - ART HOPPERS
Part of Everyone A Maker
Families! Take part in our drawing adventure which encourages play and experimentation. Make your own drawing devise and explore the unique marks of your invention.
The event will focus on experimentation and the inventive use of
materials, helping us to re-imagine how we might draw and make marks on
paper. Art Hoppers are interested to see how our bodies can influence
the marks we make – perhaps you want to create a drawing devise which
you wear under your sock, or maybe you’d like to create a tool which
attaches to the end of your spectacles… Whatever you decide to create, how would this work if you no longer
had the full control of your drawing in the way we do with a pen or pencil? How would you feel about leaving
the responsibility of your mark making down to chance? Get involved to
test the results of your own drawing invention!
What to Expect
A room full of materials; cardboard, willow, carbon paper, tape, elastic, wire, pens, pencils and a giant roll of paper.
The challenge: To explore new, exciting ways of making marks on
paper. Create a simple drawing devise to wear or manipulate! Apply your
imagination in the making and your bodies in the marking. The resulting
marks will be distinctly your own. Interact with others, or work alone.
Watch the clash of marks interact with each other created by the
community of people taking part. Join the showcase of drawing
devises as they paraded down a catwalk of paper at the end of the day.
