Self-paced online course
25 approaches to marking-making
King with Wandering Blue Eye
The Foundational Markings Seminar was developed in preparation for Wobbling the Paradigm, an endeavor to use visual arts to perceive and explore realities that have been excluded by consensus reality.
This is a self-paced online course including 25 marking approaches plus three online conferences with Majio.
Foundational MARKINGS Seminar covers:
- invisible marks that show up unannounced
- tactile marks from the environment
- 3-D marks
- naïve, authentic marks
- soft marks with various tools
- textural markings
- marks that subtract, honor the void approaches to go beyond controls of habit
Each approach introduces a new way of perceiving and thus responding.
Foundational Markings Seminar
Collaged Asemic Writing & Decorative Paper
These approaches allow us to explore our relationship to things, people and systems with playfulness. Stand back a few feet from your paper while using a pen or brush at the end of a long stick, allowing the imprecision to make fresh authentic marks. Feel your own face with one hand and without looking translate with the other hand simultaneously the sensation through marks on to a paper. These approaches offer a new way of perceiving ourselves as well as a glimpse into a different reality and in time it stretches our perceptions in the imaginal realm, influencing our empathy, creativity and innovation.
This seminar develops an awareness of:
- life force in all things
- collaboration in all aspects of marking
- how identifying with product narrows creativity
- how old habits limit perceptions
- we are not the center of the universe but in constant exchange, in conversation through our bodies and psyche
The intention of these marking experiences is to build a new vocabulary, literally and figuratively. We go on to use the marking vocabulary with our new perceptions in individual ways with various mixed media. They develop all our senses including intuition by wobbling the art paradigm developed by left-brain training, cutting through habitual personal and cultural aesthetics. Through the embodied imaginal field we cultivate a more enhanced and nuanced relationship to world as we become more a part of it.
Introduction to Markings is not required for this course.
For 25 marking approaches self-paced including three live Zoom conferences, the fee is $600
