Welcome to Drawing Into Space, a blog for the UNCC/McColl Center AIR collaboration between artist Hollis Hammonds (that’s me) and the students at UNC Charlotte, who are enrolled in Drawing 2 with professor Susan Brenner. Wow… that’s a wordy sentence.
I’m pleased to be working with you this semester, and look forward to seeing how your work evolves in our short time together.
So, why Drawing Into Space? Susan thought it would be an ideal way to incorporate my own creative research interests into your Drawing II course, and I agree that it will give us a dynamic framework to work within as we develop concepts and sculptural drawing installations for our exhibition in the gallery in mid-March.
All I ask is that you keep an open mind, and contribute your own thoughts (all and any ideas are valid), skills and talents. I’ll also mention that this project will engage each of you as individuals, but everyone will have to collaborate and participate in group work throughout the semester.
Let’s use this blog to share our ideas, research, sketches, in progress photos, and so on…
