Drawing to Learn. Drawing to Share.
We need to think constantly in terms of “drawing to learn” and “drawing to share”; to identify which is one is primary at any given moment; and to practice, guide, or provide feedback accordingly. Failure to do this can result in the extreme consequence of total rejection of drawing as an option for mark-making. Much research has already been done. We just need to pull the threads together, weave, and believe.

SketchaWhat? | SketchCrawl™

SketchaWhat? | SketchCrawl™ | Drawing to Learn. Drawing to Share. | Scoop.it
Three or four years ago a good friend of mine had a fun bachelor party consisting of visiting ten bars and pubs along the N-Juda Muni tram line: a PubCrawl.
Lisa Hosokawa's insight:

"The basic idea: to record nonstop everything I could around me with my pencil and watercolors. A drawn journal filled with details ranging from the all the coffee I drank to the different buses I took. After a whole day of drawing and walking around the city the name seemed quite fitting: “SketchCrawl” – a drawing marathon. The crawl was more tiring than I imagined but also more fun and exciting than I had thought. Giving yourself this kind of mandate for a full day changes the way you look around you. It makes you stop and see things just a tad longer, just a bit deeper … needless to say I loved it.

   I soon figured out it was much more interesting to do the marathon with a group of artists instead of all by myself! And so SketchCrawl turned communal. After a whole day of drawing it proved to be amazingly interesting and inspiring to share and compare other people’s drawings and thoughts. Different takes on our surroundings, different details, different sensibilities.

   The next step was making the SketchCrawl a World Wide event: having people from different corners of the world join in a day of sketching and journaling and then, thanks to the Internet, having everyone share the results on an online forum."

An evening with Andrew Marr

An evening with Andrew Marr | Drawing to Learn. Drawing to Share. | Scoop.it

"Introducing A Short Book about Drawing (published 10 October by Quadrille), Marr and leading neurologist Professor Paul M. Matthews will explore the links between drawing, painting and well-being. Since childhood, the journalist and TV presenter has been at his happiest with a pen or brush in his hand. But why does he do it? Does it have a point? And in what way, if any, does this activity relate to what we think of as ‘art’? Marr considers the mechanics of the process – the act of making and its importance for a happy life – alongside the ways in which good drawing or painting can make us think harder and see the world differently."

Book by Andrew Marr to be released on October 10: "Like millions of others, Andrew Marr draws. He hasn't had lessons, yet since childhood, the journalist and TV presenter has been at his happiest with a pen or brush in his hand. One way or another he draws most days, even if it's just a doodle on the edge of a newspaper. But why does he do it? Does it have a point? And in what way, if any, does this activity of his relate to what we think of as 'art'? In this intriguing new book, Andrew Marr explores the subject of drawing and painting through his own experience. He considers the mechanics of the drawing process - the act of making and its importance for a happy life - along with the ways in which good drawing or painting can make us think harder and see the world differently. He also investigates the tensions between drawing as concentrated work and drawing as an expression of freedom or play, and looks at the historical differences between drawing and fine art as well as how drawing fits into today's art world. Written in his signature fresh, engaging and evocative style and illustrated with his own work, A Short Book About Drawing is Andrew Marr's unique take on this absorbing subject."

Thoughts on drawing from artist Michael Moore.

 

"Most of what I think I know, I know from having drawn. If an object, idea, dream, pattern, place, fear, hate, love, fact or force of nature can be drawn, it makes more sense to me. Drawing can verify experience."

After much deliberation (years!), I have decided to teach my daughters specific drawing skills using Mona Brookes' book, Drawing with Children, and the Monart method, as a guide.

 

"What do you think? Should drawing skills be taught systematically like this when the child is requesting help learning "how to draw" or should the child be left to develop her own skills naturally?"

This blog site features sketches and often equally colorful stories behind the scenes by 100 invited artists correspondents in more than 30 countries around the world. Some are architects and illustrators, others are graphic designers, web developers, painters or educators, all sharing the same passion for drawing on location. If you are interested in purchase or usage of any of their sketches, please contact each artist directly.

While this blog is limited to the 100 invited correspondents, anyone can participate in the Urban Sketchers online community through the global flickr group and Facebook page. Our volunteers also manage more than 30 regional blogs in cities and countries around the world and many of those also have their own sister flickr groups and Facebook pages to help sketchers showcase their work and connect with each other.

Lisa Hosokawa's insight:

"This month marks the start of The Big Draw (#bigdraw), a month long drawing festival that engages people of all ages in informal art making to demonstrate the power of drawing to help people see, think, invent and take action. This series was started by The Campaign for Drawing, a UK-based organization, and has now spread across the world. We are lucky to have a vibrant hub locally through The Big Draw Chicago, which has programming across the city at a variety of venues and institutions.

To celebrate, we are attending events and talking with colleagues about the role of drawing in their design practice. Below find an interview with Matt McGrane, a young architect in our firm who runs our summer sketch sessions and is a leader within Open Hand Studio."

Presence, Not Praise: How To Cultivate a Healthy Relationship with Achievement | Drawing to Learn. Drawing to Share. | Scoop.it

"I once watched Charlotte with a four-year-old boy, who was drawing. When he stopped and looked up at her — perhaps expecting praise — she smiled and said, ‘There is a lot of blue in your picture.’ He replied, ‘It’s the pond near my grandmother’s house — there is a bridge.’ He picked up a brown crayon, and said, ‘I’ll show you.’ Unhurried, she talked to the child, but more importantly she observed, she listened. She was present." Stephen Grosz

Lisa Hosokawa's insight:

This post is not focused on drawing, but the brief quotation from Grosz about Charlotte Stiglitz captures the best way to be with drawing children.
