Expressive Mark Making

Jane Davies
6:30 - 9:30
Tuesday Eve

[back to quicklinks]
$ 85  

You could call this “Doodling on Steroids”; we’ll be flinging around marks, doodles, and scribbles using as many tools as possible in this fun and relaxing evening of creative mark making. Give your Inner Mark Maker a workout as you discover an exciting world of expressive possibilities using simple drawing and painting materials. Get out of your rut, bust through your blocks, re-energize your art practice. Make your mark, and make it your own!

Supply List

• A variety of pens and markers, such as Pitt Pens or paint markers
• Pencils: graphite, watercolor pencils, colored pencils, whatever you have in this department
• Oil pastels, if you have them
• Water soluble crayons (Caran D’ache Neocolor II) if you have them
• Any other drawing tools you’d like to work with
