Santi Vicente (memosesmas)
Quinta do Mirante, Castelo do Paiva (Portugal)
Drawing has always been used as a study tool in many areas and situations. And we will use one of them, the travelsketch.
Quinta do Mirante is a magical place, a place that we will discover, live together and try to learn the most from it through drawing. We will study among participants and tutors the different elements on the landscape that surrounds us. We will discover the different techniques to perform this graphical analysis.
Drawing is an analysis tool. It’s looking carefully, like look at something for the first time. It’s like looking twice. If you want to draw something, you have to study carefully what are you seeing.
The workshop intends to create a collectively illustrated travel journal. And we will apply the ones that best adapt to each situation. Finally we will generate a exhibition-installation with all the developed work.
