This hands on workshop is suitable for those who want to learn to draw as well as those who already draw. The sketch is a way of communicating, thinking and understanding. It is a learnable skill than can be used as both art and a business tool to convey ideas. The workshop will primarily focus on three-dimensional line sketching. Topics will include perspective, proportion, diagraming and various drawing techniques. Resources for further practice and development will be provided. Participants will be sketching artwork, sculpture and the museum building itself.

A 2B soft lead graphite pencil will be provided; you may bring others if desired. You must bring plain white paper (no lines) in the form of a sketchbook, sketchpad or copier paper. These may be purchased at your local art or office supply store. You will be standing or sitting on the floor while drawing and must have something hard to put the paper on, i.e. hard back sketchbook, clipboard or sturdy cardboard. Your sketchbooks or paper may be any size; it is recommend no smaller than 6x8 inches and no larger than 18x24 inches. The museum does not allow pens, tripods, easels, backpacks or anything you cannot carry around. Please do not bring erasers.

Please meet at the entrance of the new museum building at 10:00am sharp.

The workshop will be led by Jason Hart, an architect, owner of CUBE design + research, and a five time MIT IAP sketching instructor. Feel free to contact him with questions: hart.jw@gmail.com.
