Stratford Arts Social: At Home - Mark-Making

Increase your drawing/mark-making ‘vocabulary’ to help improve your drawing and observation skills.

You will need:

• Pen/pencil – Biro, standard pencil, felt tip pen, or any drawing equipment you can find.
• Paper of any colour – copy paper, recycled, tissue paper, anything you find lying around.

Activity length: Minimum 5 – 10 minutes for each drawing (longer if you can)

In this exercise, you will be producing marks which you can use to create future artworks. Choosing the correct mark encourages you to think about your drawing, as well as making it interesting and thoughtful because it is communicating something more than just a visual image.
