Urban Drawing Group

By CAM Raleigh | November 5, 2013

The CAM Raleigh Urban Drawing Group is a monthly group intended for all skill levels interested in exercising, exploring or expanding their drawing skills. The Urban Drawing Group meets inside of CAM Raleigh and then enters the urban settings surrounding the museum in the Warehouse District, and sometimes further into downtown Raleigh. Pausing at inspiring vistas, ignored buildings, curious landscapes, or forgotten details, the goal of the Urban Drawing group is to take time to study our surroundings and exercise our dormant drawing skills. All media that can pack into a pocket, backpack, or purse are encouraged and participants are expected to bring their own supplies.

Participation in each monthly session is just $5 (cost of museum admission), free for CAM Raleigh members. All participants must check-in at the CAM Raleigh front desk upon arrival.

*The group will depart CAM Raleigh shortly after 2:00 p.m., please arrive early so you have time to check in.

Participants must be 18+.

Click HERE to register online today!

This workshop is open to participants ages 13 and up.

Part of CAM Raleigh's Art to Wear and Textiles Workshop Series. In this workshop, students will learn how to print images on fabric using a common ink jet printer. Students will create a unique, juxtaposed piece by weaving together two of their fabric prints. In keeping with the CAM Raleigh exhibition Your Land / My Land: Election '12 by Jonathan Horowitz, participants will have the opportunity to create their own art piece to visually explore contrasting ideas and images through a woven "visual debate".

Participants may bring their own images, or may choose from an available selection at the workshop. All other materials will be provided. This workshop is open to ages 13 and up, so adults and teen are encouraged to attend. Come with a friend or family member and enjoy an afternoon of art making together! This project is suitable for any skill level. Participants will go home with a unique piece of art that is sure to be a great conversation starter. If you have ever been curious about fiber arts, CAM Raleigh workshops, or have just been wanting to make something, we encourage you to register today!

Shelley Smith is a multidisciplinary artist living and working in Raleigh, North Carolina. Smith primarily uses textiles as her medium but often incorporates fiber with other sculptural elements. She combines traditional and contemporary techniques to create work that speaks to the nature of private versus public identity, as well as humans' relationship to the wild. Smith received a Bachelor of Art + Design with a concentration in Fibers and Suface Design from North Carolina State University College of Design and has taught students at CAM Raleigh Summer Studios, NCSU Design Camp, and the after-school art program New Sense Studios, of which she is a co-founder.
