Session 1: FROM SCHEME TO VISUAL
Platform: Google Meet
Sometimes in your academic or professional career, you need to think of solutions and ideas, but you struggle with either generating or explaining it in a way that everyone can understand it clearly. The workshop “From Scheme to Visual” will introduce a step-by-step approach in drawing exercises: from breaking down the topic, identifying key words, associating real life objects to keywords, and visualizing. This method can help you come up with solutions, and materialise your solutions on paper to help translate the idea.
The event is part of the workshop series titled Big Draw presented by The Big Draw in collaboration with RMIT University Vietnam and The RMIT Visual Art Club (RVAC), hoping to bring to event participants a useful instrument to learn, be creative and express yourself and help each person to identify the benefits of drawing for themselves.
