Size & Scale: Drink & Draw | February 2020

Guest Artist: Sean Mac

Take a break from your typical ways of drawing. We’ll help you get out of your head by sharing a variety of creative approaches to making marks on paper. We’ll draw big things small, small things big. We’ll draw with delicate dip pens, clunky crayons, finger paint, sticks, and more. The goal of the night: experience drawing as a way to snap out of old habits and try on a new drawing styles.

Our guest artist, Sean Mac, will introduce his favorite drawing exercises that help him break old habits and stay positive. Shifting scale from oversized butcher paper to tiny post-it notes will be one of many methods used to help guests experience new ways of drawing that emphasize creativity over control.
