In this workshop, students will learn to see history as it is imprinted onto the physical built environment, and students will create rubbings that transfer the layers of time etched in place into their own artistic creations. SCADs historic structures and outside space will serve as tangible records of history, as the marks, scratches, and surface texture of architecture indicate rich layers of meaning accumulated over time. Students will examine how the buildings, signs, pathways, and stones of Savannah bear scars reflecting the locations layered past. Creating imprint rubbings of architectural elements, students will craft physical imprints of the sites surfaces in order to construct visual stories of time and place. Meet at Jen Library.
