Playfully investigate abstract mark-making on paper to develop and build your knowledge and use of tools and materials, and your own visual language. Discover how mark making and materials can be used to provide fresh inspiration and new ideas through the use of chance, addition and removal. Throughout the course you will be encouraged to create a series of sensory, freeform, playful and impulsive textural samples using unusual mark-making methods. You will go back to basics and explore a re-engagement / engagement with mark-making tools. This course will introduce innovative ways of mark making using everyday household and studio items. You will learn about the different qualities and effects of ink types, paper surfaces, and how each re-acts differently giving exciting effects. You will discover how interesting textures can be created using the simplest of ways.

Both beginners to practising artists are welcome and exercises and discussions are designed to provide inspiration for all stages of development. You will leave the course with your own personal reference book of samples and techniques, a 'textural bible' of mark-making processes.
