Mark making is a term used to describe the different lines, dots, patterns and textures that are made visible as a manifestation of applied or gestural energy. They are key to developing an artists individual “language” and it is a term that can refer to any art material applied to any surface. Descriptive, expressive, conceptual, or symbolic, marks cane held or subtle. Artists use these marks to convey feelings and emotions in response to something seen or something felt. Mark making can be used to create a purely abstract composition.

In this experimental workshop of free expression, discover and explore a wide variety of ways to make marks through different techniques and varied brushes and materials. Start to develop a new vocabulary of line, texture, pattern and value. Learn to “enter” your work in a different way. Create ink-on-paper studies that can be formatted in a leporello: the leporello is an accordion-style book that unfolds as separate pages and also as one piece.

This class will be held by Zoom.
