Adapted from a three-day session at the Art Student’s League in New York, this hands-on online workshop led by artist & ECUAD faculty Alex Philips is designed to give drawing enthusiasts a direct experience of spontaneous creating in the moment, bypassing deliberation and conscious planning.
The only materials needed are a few large sheets of paper and some drawing supplies from your local arts shop or dollar store. This session will consist of 3 twenty-minute guided sessions, each focused on a different aspect of drawing, divided by 5-minute breaks.
No drawing experience necessary, and all ages welcome to participate!
Participants should have a minimum of four large sheets of drawing paper: 18” x 24” or larger, and a flat surface on which to work or a drawing board.
Participants should also have a selection of drawing media of their choice such as pencils, graphite sticks, willow and/or compressed charcoal, sharpeners, and erasers.
Alex Phillips has been teaching courses in art, anthropology, and creative processes at Emily Carr University for nearly twenty years. She holds degrees in sculpture and socio-cultural anthropology from the University of Washington, and maintains an active studio practice in figurative sculpture and drawing which focuses on individual freedom in mass culture through the lens of the carnivalesque. Alex’s work has been exhibited across North America and in the UK. A former illustrator for both British Columbia’s major news networks, she has received numerous awards including grants from the Canada Council, the BC Arts Council, and the International Sculpture Competition.
This event is part of Culture Days,
a national celebration of arts and culture.
