You are invited with me to learn how to use the building blocks of mark making to create a completed work of art rich with the texture and movement of mark making.
You will be exploring a WIDE range of techniques for making marks. Some familiar and some unconventional. Besides the usual materials for marks, you will explore using stitches, collage, staplers, and solder irons as nontraditional methods for making marks. Mark making is a great tool for exploring basic concepts of composition. Mark making is fundamental to abstract art. However, the marks learned can be incorporated into collage, visual journaling, more traditional drawing or painting, and fiber art.
This a great class for those traveling as the materials are lightweight and most likely things you already own.
Materials Fee $20 paid at beginning of class includes:
• Stabilo pencils
Supplies Needed to bring for Class:
• A pad of mixed media paper
For your convenience, you may pre-order your materials for classes! Your materials will be waiting for you at the retreat. And you can always purchase additional materials at the retreat.
