Third Thursdays is a new evening offering featuring talks, workshops, and happenings with and by local artists.
In this sketch-inspired workshop, participants will make an accordion style sketchbook that you will fill with ideas and drawings about your dreams for the future of our city. In the Anaheim of the future (or whatever city you live in) what buildings, programs, or institutions would you have? For example, if your city had more funding, you might include a shelter for unhoused folx, a community center, community garden, etc. If you can dream it, you can sketch it!
This workshop is created and delivered by Adriana Martinez @sketchbookjunkie and is inspired by Muzeo’s current exhibition Origins & Displacements, Vol. 2 by William Camargo @billythecamera.
What you’ll need to participate in the workshop:
- Printer paper (3-4)
- Thin cardboard (from a cereal box or something similar)
- Glue stick or double sided sticky tape
- Drawing utensils such as markers, crayons, pastels, etc.
- Optional – construction paper or other decorative paper for covers (optional)
- Optional – magazines (optional)
