Mark Making – As soon as your brush (or whatever tool) touches a canvas, a mark is made
As soon as your brush (or whatever tool you use) touches your chosen surface, a mark is made (mark-making).
You can make different types of marks, such as lines, scribbles, pattern, dots, dashes, textures, pixels, rings, smudges and brushstrokes (there are many more).
The marks you make can be free-flowing, rigid, quick, large sweeps, fine and delicate, rolled, pressed (there are many more varieties).
Mark making can involve using a variety of tools from pens, pencils, paintbrushes, spray cans and charcoal, to more unusual tools such as potatoes, cotton buds, your fingers, kitchen utensils, bubble wrap and straws.
