Art Making l Drawing: Mark-Making Variations

The Art Museum is partnering with the Arts Council of Princeton to provide free online art-making experiences. Classes are taught by artist-instructor Barbara DiLorenzo over Zoom, so participants can join live from their home computers; techniques emphasize drawing with pen or pencil on paper. Each lesson features works from the Museum’s collections.

Artists use a variety of mark-marking techniques, from smooth to expressive, sometimes altering the style to fit the subject. In addition, many artists use contour lines of varying thicknesses to show an object either projecting or retreating in space. In this session, we will explore these effects and practice using them.
