Whether it is the geology, flora, fauna or weather of the Pacific Northwest that speaks to you, a personal map can reflect your observations and knowledge of a place, enriching your own experience of it.
Participants will work with Jocelyn Curry with the aid of a provided art supply kit to create personal maps of the Learning Center/Diablo Lake neighborhood. Students may also bring a personal map project to work on if desired.
Instruction will include basic map iconography, drafting and coloring guidance. Useful hand lettering model sheets of historic forms will be included. At our disposal will be the Wild Ginger library, photocopy services and long hours of daylight for enjoying time outdoors and in the spacious classroom. Class lessons and individual coaching in design will be liberally given.
Drawing experience is helpful but not required. Join us in exploring, reflecting and recording as we make our one-of-a-kind maps in a setting ideal for this design immersion.
