Workshop: Narrative Drawing and Painting with Patricia Sonnino


Patricia Sonnino
2 classes
Saturday & Sunday from 9:30am-5:30pm
October 18 & 19

Visual sequences have long been a means for telling stories and conveying ideas. In this class we will survey the graphic traditions of story telling exemplified by the Bayeux tapestry, Roman friezes, Pompeian frescos, historic maps, and comics. We will discuss techniques used film and theatre that are useful in inspiring drawing: the pan, the close-up, the context, the sets, and the characters. Students will work with various pictorial formats as a springboard to create their own personal narratives or abstract sequences.
