ARCHITECTURE AND DRAWING: Observation, interpretation, imagination
Wednesday, 23 March, 10am-4pm (1 hour lunchbreak)
Philip Meadowcroft's workshop will look at ways of sketching places and spaces and how they are inhabited - the relationship between buildings as settings and the activities that they support. We will look at outdoor spaces through a walk through local streets observing and capturing qualities and the life that goes on therewithin sketchbooks, followed by drawing interiors and a façade from a more analytical point of view, to finally using various techniques to draw the setting of the studio space and the life within it. We will explore the ‘negotiated line’, palimpsest, qualities of light and shadow and techniques of drawing from rapid approximations to precise detail focusing throughout on the dialogue between people and their setting.
