Exploring Mark Making

Come and explore the theme of finding a comfortable "mark" or series of marks/lines during the creative process. We will utilize repeated mark making, focusing on creating a composition. Compositions could be representational if so desired, (like a van Gogh drawing) or abstract (like Bridget Riley, Sol LeWitt, Bryce Marden, Yayoi Kusama, Ben Shahn, etc.) You choose your path!


Recommended Supplies: marker, crayon, colored pencil, watercolor, acrylic, charcoal, graphite, conte´crayon, even etching needle and a piece of plexi. And of course any other art supply you wish to use!


No drawing experience needed! Beginners to enthusiasts encouraged to attend!


Drop In & Draw is a fun and safe event, we have a blast creating, talking and "being" together. Please consider joining!


Follow the link on Monday 3/29!
