WTSP 2018 – Tactile Drawing

Venue: 1131 Mission Street

Tactile Drawing

Tactile drawing is a continuing basic drawing class emphasizing texture and surface. No previous drawing experience is required. We will be learning to make marks through the manipulation of the surface using materials such as graphite powder, soldering irons, tape, and thread. An example of one of the techniques we will be covering in this course is image transfers using frottage. The instructor will begin each class with a demonstration on material usage and have dedicated class time for you to familiarize yourself with these methods and for experimentation. Through our assignments we will touch upon the formal elements of art: value, space, line, form and composition. The objective for this course is to promote appreciation and enthusiasm for the drawing process and, most importantly, to provide more tools that can serve to further your explorations in art.

COVID UPDATE

In response to the current COVID-19 situation, we require that all persons continue to wear masks at all times when in the Root Division space. For the safety of our students, artists, and extended community, we also require all students to provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination (or same-day negative test results) for entry to classes held indoors at Root Division.

You may bring a physical copy of your vaccination card or via digital download through the State of California Digital Vaccine Record Portal here. (You may also provide a negative test result taken before each class session. Please contact us with any questions about the types of test results accepted.)

We ask this as a show of community care and a move towards continued safety while gathering in-person.
