12monthchallenge -Mark Making

Our first Month of The Arts Schools 12 month challenge and for January 2019 it is MARK MAKING

Drawing and Painting IS making marks.

Without confidence to make marks you can’t draw, and we are all about drawing. Whether it is to make the drawing the art, to develop designs, or as a mindful meditation, it doesn’t matter, just draw!

This month we are thinking about how to make marks, how we can use different materials and what we enjoy, and engaging in drawing.

So far I have explored pencil, pens, wax crayons, watercolours and pastels. I have drawn from life, imagination and just made makes without thought.

I hope you are getting time to draw, and if you are interested in art lessons I have a few spaces left in my new drawing class starting January Wednesday 30th or sketchclub on Thursday 31st.
