Marking Making: Developing your Signature
Diane Williams, Instructor
Dates: August 19th – 23rd, 2019 (9am-4pm)
Materials Fee: $0
Mark making is as distinctive as your fingerprint, adding a personal touch to your painting. Marks can energize a painting, or highlight movement, texture or direction. In this 5-day workshop you will practice abstract acrylic painting techniques that are enhanced by your personal mark making. Feeling stuck or that something personal or dynamic is missing in your painting? This class is designed to help you develop your signature style by identifying your personal and unique marks.
Venture with us into the realm of self-expression by identifying your own unique style. We will be exploring a variety of techniques using water soluble pencils, Sumi ink, charcoal, sticks, scrapers, and other mark making tools. We will also use stencils, stamping, special patinas and other applications to create multi-dimensional layering effects adding depth and visual interest. The results are alive, authentic and exhilarating. Unveil the mysteries of abstraction by practicing techniques in form, rhythm and motion. Each student will receive individual instruction and group critique.
