Drink & Draw [VIRTUAL]: Salvaging Scraps

This July, our Drink & Draw projects dedicated to all the leftover fragments, or “chads”. First, we’ll put to use all the excess bits and pieces from other projects. Then, we’ll replenish our paper remnants by trying out the art of papercutting.

Guest Artist: Mara Baker

Save your scraps for a night of collage with our Resident Artist, Mara Baker! Mara’s artistic practice explores the intersection of impermanence and regeneration. By reusing remnants from other projects, she gives new life to discarded bits and pieces like yarn, labels, twist ties, and packaging like mesh produce bags.

Inspired by stop-motion animation, we will explore intuitive ways to make (and remake) collages. By documenting collages as they develop, we will be able to think about collaging as a form of choreography and organization. 

For this workshop, no scrap is too small or strange. Gather up materials from the studio, the kitchen, the office, and even past Drink & Draw events and come ready for playful experimentation. 

Suggested Materials:

  • Glue, glue stick, or tape 
  • Paper scraps
  • Found bits & pieces (i.e. produce stickers, stamps, packaging, tin foil, etc.)
  • Camera (i.e. cell phone)

Optional Materials:

  • Scissors or exacto knife
  • Paper to mount collage onto

Drink & Draw [VIRTUAL] is a low-key drop-in workshop devoted to staying creative from home. There are no pretensions and newcomers are always welcome. Each event features a guest artist and a project that uses minimal 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!
