Sketch-Storming Sessions at WAM
JUN 1 - AUG 5, 2022
This year we are excited to announce that our 2022 Weatherspoon Summer Activity will be a new collaborative activity called SKETCH-STORMING.VIEW ALL EVENTS
Starting June 1 through August 5, visitors of all ages will find a series of sketch journals made available to them at the Weatherspoon Welcome Desk.
The Sketch-Storming journals are aimed to enhance visitor experiences during their time with art at the Weatherspoon by providing a place for everyone to process and record their thoughts, feelings, and observations in their independent interactions with art. As more people visit and add their own experiences to the journals it then becomes a collaboration ultimately creating a collective visual record of visitor thoughts, inquiry, and experiences.
The process is quite simple and there is no one “correct way” to utilize these journals. You simply visit and check it out—take it along with you as you explore the museum, pausing to reflect, sketch, and or write as you see fit—and then simply return it to the WAM Welcome Desk before you leave so that more people can add to the journal. We hope to see visitors not only sketching and writing in these journals in an expressive outlet that feels right for them but pausing to embrace the moments of thought, reflection, and engagement with art rather than simply passing through.
We can’t wait to see what everyone comes up with this summer here at the Weatherspoon!
