Description

Making the Mark--Instructor: Connie Furgason

Creating abstract, expressive calligraphic or any art can in part begin with a simple mark.
Often when students "make their mark" we have tendencies to form marks that are
somewhat "misdirected" or we do the "same old..same old"! How can we create marks
that evoke interest, texture and emotion? In this class we will make marks with a variety
of tools and mediums and learn how to "place" the mark to be an enhancement to the
painting or calligraphic piece rather than a distraction. We will then add colour and text,
the style and design which will be determined by the nature of the marks we have created.
Students will have the opportunity to create backgrounds suitable for calligraphic art,
paintings, work on fabric…almost anything that we can add a medium to!
We will be using inks, acrylic paint, watercolour, gesso and a wide range of other
mediums.

Supplies:

one sheet any watercolour paper you prefer to work on, or Arches Text Wove. It works best.

tube acrylics, if you have some…3 or 4 colours

watercolours

pencil

favourite larger size brushes

Optional: gel pens, coloured pencils or a white sketching pencil if you have any of these
