Symposium lectures

As you know, Symposium presenters will do a series of talks over the course of the workshop on a variety of topics. These talks will take place in five time slots, offering not only a break from the field sketching sessions but another great opportunity to hear presenters share their sketching experience in parts of the world as remote from each other as Mauritania, Singapore or Barcelona.

Symposium lectures time slots
Thursday, 1 to 2 p.m.
Thursday, 5 to 6 p.m
Friday, 1 to 2 p.m.
Friday, 5 to 6 p.m
Saturday, 1 to 2 p.m.

[Consult schedule for more details.]

We already shared the highlights of Professor Ching's talk, where he'll go over perspective principles for sketchers.

To get a little more into the academic mindset, we'll post highlights from the rest of the talks over the next few days. These summaries should help you decide which sessions to pick — four sessions are scheduled for each of the five time slots.

So let's continue the Symposium lectures summaries with Tia's:

From sketching together to a group exhibition
For sketchers interested to sketch in a group and getting their sketches exhibited, my recent exhibition entitled “Sketches of Tiong Bahru: Outside-In” with three other fellow sketchers from Singapore will provide a background from the planning to the final execution stage. Using the video materials and sketches in the exhibition as a vehicle, this talk will focus on the choice of sketching locations, the details, the important of framing and the group synergy from an Asian perspective.
