Drink & Draw [VIRTUAL] Architecture: Abstract Schematics

This May, we’re dedicating our Drink & Draw series to architectural space! Join us for one or both sessions to explore perspective, geometry, scale, maps, schematics, and try out unconventional ways of rendering spaces, both real and imagined.

Guest Artist: Kelly Kaczynski

Join guest artist Kelly Kaczynski for a reverse journey of mapping space. Rather than describing an existing physical environment or architecture, she will start with abstraction to picture alternative forms of constructing space. Working backwards, we will start by drawing “accidental schematics” using geometry, chance, and intuition for something that may or may not correspond to a logical reality.

We’ll ask, “What if this was a plan for a building? A city? A safe passage across the ocean?” Then with a second drawing, we’ll translate the abstractions into a map or plan for a physical space. We will layer the drawings and explore their points of correspondence.

Suggested Materials:

  • Drawing materials (pens, pencils, markers, ink and quill)
  • Charcoal or crayons for rubbings
  • Paper to draw on
  • Paper for folding into shapes
  • Toothpicks, string, or chopsticks, coins or buttons, handkerchief or napkin, string 

Optional Materials:

  • Scissors, X-acto tool, or tear bar
  • Glue

Drink & Draw [VIRTUAL] is a low-key drop-in social workshop devoted to staying creative from home. There are no pretensions and newcomers are always welcome, so invite your friends to join! Each Drink & Draw [Virtual] features a guest artist and a theme or project that uses everyday household supplies. Don’t have all the materials? Hosts will help you improvise. Find us on Zoom, a free app for your phone or computer. And of course: BYOB! 

Suggested Donation $15: Pitch in to our Venmo Tip Jar (@spudnikpress) or donate on the website. Kelly is donating her portion of tips to the studio, so 100% of your donation will directly support Spudnik Press Cooperative.
