About the event

Break out your markers, crayons, and anything that can make a line and dive into a page of Parade: People In Progress—where ambiguous characters, who live on blank pages, invite you to invent their moment, their story, and their world. During the workshop, participants will chose from a selection of pages from Parade, and a selection of a dozen different mediums to draw on. There is also a "share" pile in which participants can continue each other's drawings when they've come to a stopping point, and want to see where the next artist takes the page. Completed drawings will be displayed on a standing wall, and artists and viewers are invited to write out the narrative on a separate tag to the piece.

Materials include graphic shading pencils set, mechanical pencils of different softness, multiple marker sets, different widths and tips of black markers (chisel, round brush tip, .1 mm, etc), colored pens, and colored pencils.

CREATIVE DIVE! Workshops with Rebecca Meredith

There's no reason to be alone while you make. Be in the moment, share your observations of your environment, of your own process, and learn by doing. A social and positive attitude towards exploration, without concern for failure is a contagious recipe for satisfaction and enjoyment. Consider what's possible if let yourself play. In Creative Dive workshops, we experiment with a variety of media in order to allow the innocence and unimpaired enthusiasm of the novice. We play and explore in a social and supportive context.
