Uncovering Your Mark

Instructor: Ann Trainor Domingue

Date: Saturday, October 13

Time: 1pm – 4pm

Cost: $85 Members | $105 Non-member


Each of us has a unique set of life experiences and interests. In this workshop you’ll uncover ‘your marks’ –and learn through a practical fun process–ways to incorporate them into your artwork. The ‘Uncovering Your Mark’ workshop will help you generate ideas and more importantly how to use them to enrich your art–uncovering the most ‘authentic’ you as you continue on your lifelong art journey.

This workshop is a hands-on class where students will make personal discoveries through thoughtful inquiries and then apply the info through small scale sketching exercises and preliminary color play. Class is focused on generating ideas rather than finished artworks. Your approach can be realistic, semi-abstract, abstract or anything in between and beyond.

All levels welcome. At any point in your art journey.
