Open Field Drawing Club with mnartists.org is a free weekly Walker Open Field program that invites participatory and collaborative drawing and discussion. Drawing Club will met every Thursday from 4pm to 8pm at the picnic tables on Open Field during summers 2010, 2011, 2012, and 2014.
Drawing Club is about the social experience of art-making, collaboration and play. Come add your creative touch during weekly sessions open to local artists and the public alike.
Here is how it works: Art supplies are provided on large tables in shaded areas of the outdoor Open Lounge. Start a new drawing or select one in progress from the table. Slide it back into the pool, pass it around, and alter, edit or amend it until the group declares it complete. All ages, abilities, and aesthetics welcome. The finished works are collected and displayed throughout the summer at future sessions. There are no assignments, structured projects or formal processes for drawing club. This idea is to make collaborative works…however that manifests itself and what can beat making art under a grove of trees with a cold drink!
Drawing club is open to anyone and everyone, with the intention of building our community of local-artists-regulars who continue to come back all summer long and mixing in healthy does of the rest of us. Drawing club is intended to be a social event where local artists and Walker visitors alike may meet, interact, share ideas, and collaborate with one another in a relaxed but inspiring art-community-based atmosphere.
