Tue 4 Nov: 4D-drawing workshop 10.00-18.00

We will run a four-dimensional drawing workshop in the studio on Tuesday.  Start 10.00 sharp with briefing / lecture and workshop in studio until 18.00. We are asking you to attend the entire day.

Please bring the usual drawing equipment: tracing paper & detail paper, pencils, rulers, pens, masking tape, etc..  You may want to bring your computer too if you are efficient to draw on it. important that you are able to print out at end of day for pin-up.

In preparation for the drawing workshop on Tuesday it is essential that you produce a line-drawing of a minimum of 3 orthogonal cross sections through 3 different panes of your last (most complicated) plaster cast. see sketch. Scale 1:1. It will be essential that you measure the cast, so it is an accurate drawing. It must be in front of you when you draw. It should be a simple line drawing with 0.35mm lines for where you cut through and 0.08 for elevations / dotted for things not visible. Please bring this drawing with you printed out.

Also in preparation and in advance of the workshop, please read the short text 'Beyond the model' by Marie Ange Brayer which we uploaded to the unit A dropbox. Link here
