What You'll Learn

  • Finding Inspiration. You'll look at current maps and start thinking about how you use them, what attracts you, and what puzzles you about them.
  • Hand-Drawn + Printed Maps. We'll focus on tangible maps, both mundane and experiemental.  
  • Mapping in the Digital Age. We'll look at stand alone digital maps, as well as examples that are integrated into blogs and websites

Note: This class filmed on a laptop + using screenshare, and may not be as flashy as some others, but amazing and inspiring work is created all the same!
