The Drawing Project brings artist and MCAD MFA Alum Emily Hoisington to recreate her One Line Drawings first implemented in summer 21016. Emily creates continuous line chalk drawings on the sidewalk (from observation of the MCAD campus) and provide chalk for participants to take over and create their own continuous line drawings. The result of this collaboration is an ephemeral web of connected and intersecting lines of observation ending in an abstracted impression of the shapes and textures of the people and objects around us. This experience will lead participants through the MCAD campus grounds.
The two prong project also engages community members in bookmaking surprises making meander books with one line drawings at our drawing tables. The event engages all ages and abilities in the simple act of drawing.
