After touring the Carnegie International, Nicole Eisenman, recipient of the 2013 Carnegie Prize, led a series of figure drawing workshops set up inside the Carnegie Museum of Art. Attendees drew and sketched live models posing beside each exhibit inside the museum, including the work of Pedro Reyes.
Friday was filled with lectures, panel discussions and workshops that focused on experimental drawing techniques. Paolo Pedercini introduced subversive game play programs that actually involved drawing pixel-based images with laser pointers. I was able to examine an extraordinary amount of new and inventive drawing techniques and really gain new insights on groundbreaking drawing methods thanks to CCAD, CMU and UAL.
