In "Explorational Drawing," we will explore a range of techniques that can be used to make drawings; from turning doodles into patterns, tracing the shadows of objects, and rubbing textures onto the page. Drawing can be meditative, through making repeating shapes, and it can be an exciting way to use color to express oneself. The goal is to enjoy the process of learning to make different kinds of marks on the page. By the end we will make a coloring book with drawing prompts from the class.
