Layering & Mark Making

$ 185  


Mark making describes the different lines, dots, marks, patterns, and textures we create in an artwork. It can be loose and gestural or controlled and neat. It can apply to any material used on any surface: paint on canvas, ink or pencil on paper, etc. Artists use gesture to express their feeling and emotions in response to something seen or something felt – or gestural qualities can be used to create a purely abstract composition.
In this class, we will start our paintings with loose gestural marks and continue on with thin layers of fluid acrylics. Between the layers, we may choose to emphasize a shape with mor e marks, gradually building our unique abstract work. 

Materials Fee $15 paid to instructor at beginning of class includes:

All Paints and Mediums
Other various media (pastels, charcoal, etc.)
Stencils, etc.

Supplies Needed  to bring for Class:

12” x 12” stretched canvas (nothing smaller)
