Students will explore a range of conventional and non-conventional mark-making methods in this 3-hour workshop.
Drawing from observation as well as imagination, students will learn the art of stenciling, masking, photo-transferring, and wet and dry medias, learning how to integrate different visual languages of drawing through collaborative and self-directed exercises. Elements of chance and intuition will also play a critical role in this expressive investigation.
