Mark Making Workshop with Rachel Volpone and Cynthia DiGiacomo: Sat., Oct. 9, 2-5pm

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 artist’s individual “language” and it is a term that can refer to any art material applied to any surface. Descriptive, expressive, conceptual, or symbolic, marks can be bold 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, we will explore a wide variety of ways to make marks through different techniques and tools. Start to develop a new vocabulary of line, texture, pattern and value. Learn to “enter” your work in a different way. Create numerous ink-on-paper studies that can stand alone or be used for collage. We will also create brushes out of unconventional materials.
Paper and black ink and materials to make brushes will be supplied by the instructors.
Limit 8 students
