  1. Supply List

By Lorrie Abdo

At a very young age we began making marks on paper (or a wall, the preferred surface for precocious rebels). In time, most of us forget how satisfying scribbling actually can be. Beginning with some basic exploration, this class reminds students of fun techniques they haven’t thought of for a long time. Mark making explorations are great as warm-up exercises. They can also be used as collage materials, as references for future projects, or as offbeat postcards to share with friends.

Although the 101-mark milestone might not be met, the workshop provides food for future thought about what students can mark up next.

This class will be recorded. Please see our FAQ for recording terms and conditions.
