Painting Boot Camp: Making Your Mark

Since before cave paintings, humans have left their mark. How a painter chooses to apply paint is one of the most defining characteristics of their artwork. Through guided play and experimentation with various techniques of paint application, students will learn to mark make thoughtfully and with confidence. Lessons will apply to all subject matter, styles, genres, and painting media. Topics covered include experimentation with a variety of paint applications such as utilizing painting knives, rags, long sticks, fingers, wet into wet, glazes, scale of marks, gestures, stippling, dabbing, and pointillism, among others.
