How to make your own Street Sketch:
As one person said when offering feedback "Yes-But how to draw people in and encourage to interact?" We agree. How we pull people in and encourage them to participate will be key to the success of this project. This is our rough sketch of how we might engage with the public.
The text on the street side of the form reads:
Draw, doodle, invent, create, sketch. Be part of a tradition that dates back to 10,000 B.C. and that has deep roots in the Bay Area creative community. Express yourself on the flip side!
The text on the sides of the form reads:
San Francisco has always been home to people who just love to draw—muralists and street artists, as well as art world luminaries such as Ruth Asawa, Richard Serra, Viola Frey, Richard Diebenkorn, Raymond Saunders, and Andrew Schoultz. Join us here at Street Sketch and be a part of this great tradition.
This is the feedback we received on the Market Street Engagement Day where our design was presented to the public in the form of a large scale color print. People made notes with sharpies onto paper provided in response to specific questions we were seeking input on.
We asked for feedback on these key questions:
I find this project to be engaging and want to interact/play with it.
Yes. Necessary and in keeping with SF reputation of creativity!
Yes-would also be great to maybe have a few prompts.
Yes, could add designs or dot to dot / color by numbers for fun?
Yes-But how to draw people in and encourage to interact?
Set age ranges-kids, teens etc.
How to access top height?
This project is an appropriate fit for this part of San Francisco.
Agree. As a street artist I feel that there isn't enough space for the city's artists.
It is. As a tourist I sometimes feel disappointed SF has lost a lot of its creativity...
Yes as long as used positively
