Over the course of several days students at the Summer Arts Program at Hoff-Barthelson Music School explored painting without brushes.
Mark Making is a technique students used to create a variety of designs using the edges of index cards dipped in paint. Index card edges were used straight, curved, and bent in an L shape. Students created a variety of appealing patterns on the paper with their index cards.Instead of brushes students blew through straws to move the paint around their paper. Both one color and multiple colors produced interesting and organic paintings. Images naturally revealed themselves to the individual viewer.
