The goal of this workshop is to loosen up, experiment and play with drawing marks, painting spills, drips, drags, imprints (etc), and collage. The idea is to let go of control and push your limits allowing the materials to take the lead as you aim to develop a small series of artworks by the end of the day. This could potentially serve as a launching pad to give you new direction in your work.Working from your imagination you will begin by creating abstract marks on paper based on your interpretation of my prompts. By allowing yourself to get lost in the process you will make new discoveries for your studio practice.  Following your instincts, you will respond to the imagery unfolding before you and begin the process of editing and shaping by cutting, ripping, masking, glazing and painting.
