Creative mark-making is the foundation for both drawing and painting, comparable to penmanship or a signature. As various drawing and painting endeavors call for different styles of marks, students in this course develop unique mark-making sets for a variety of applications, using innovative strategies and exercises. Working in different size scales and time frames, and inspired by sensory motivations including music, sound and movement, students investigate alternative drawing and painting processes with both familiar and unconventional materials. This course is both a kinetic and reflective adventure in which emerging artists gain confidence, building a repertoire of techniques and skills for drawing and painting, while discovering their unique artistic process and identity.

This course is held at the Westerly Education Center.
