The Monster Draw workshop, May 14 in the LeBel Building, engaged talented high schoolers in the exploration of drawing media, says Myah Robillard.
“It was just a good atmosphere with all these creative kids together,” says the UWindsor visual arts student, just finished her second year. She led one of three modules that saw participants employ charcoal, felt markers and Conté crayon.
“They experimented with paper and how the different media worked with it,” Robillard says. “My role was to help them explore.”
More than 30 high school pupils attended the event, organized by School of Creative Arts instructors Lisa Baggio and Victor Romao. In each session, students drew one-third of an image and left it behind for members of the next group, so that three different artists contributed to each piece.
“Every student has their own technique and their own imagination,” says Robillard. “They were so excited at the end of the day to see the finished works.”
She says she would love to play a role in any future Monster Draw events.
“I am passionate about art,” she says. “I felt like I really connected with them and the work was phenomenal.”
