Drawing workshop Map to your Roots - Workshop with Helen Storm
Drawing workshop Map to your Roots Workshop with Helen Storm
Thursday evening 7th February Helen Storm presents another drawing workshop at the museum. This time she got inspired by the maps from Qiu Zhijie, whom is exhibiting at Positions #4. In the workshop we will dive into the world of maps.
In the past it was wonderful to browse through the atlas and to look at all the different countries, names of places and mountain ranges. Now we have google maps and you can find everything online. Some artists use the drawn map as a way to explain a subject instead of a place. Qiu Zhijie is such an artist; several works by him are included in the Van Abbemuseum collection.
With some exercises, we will create a map inspired by what we see at Positions # 4.
What words inspire you and which memories belong to your roots? What makes you you?
