Design Elements with Motive: a Playing Field with Landscape


This workshop will introduce you to a wisdom, that to draw something is to fully understand it; a fact-finding mission through a drawing/design process. Let’s together realize that drawing connects us to our experience, with an intimacy not otherwise possible. One simply holds a mark making tool in one’s hand and the artist’s touch becomes elemental and we can see how much an artist can do with a pencil, a pen, a brush, a stick. Importantly, we will learn how distinctive each artist’s language of mark making can be. Utilizing tools of watercolor, pastel, charcoal, and graphite in design, our investigations will open your awareness to a successful studio practice. It will be an adventure, come on along for a ride; ‘into the wilderness’.


• Photograph of a favorite landscape.

• 7 sheets of cut or torn paper, about 6″x6″ (bristol or equiv, saunders wc paper 140#) And your mark-making supplies, both wet and dry media, such as:
