This multi-week class with teaching artist Earl McBride is an adventure in finding and developing your own mark! We will utilize personal biography and storytelling to unlock symbols and ways of expression as we develop our own personal marks. We will explore lines, shapes, historical symbols, and ideologies that shape our art practice and play with idiosyncratic methods of art making. We'll examine the pressure and quality of your line and mark making in addition to how color, negative space, and marks work together to create meaning. Almost any medium can be used in this experimental class!
