A journal of my daily mark-making art practice

This blog is an account of my daily art journal. I have documented my mark-making exercises and reflections. Please don’t judge any of my drawings. They are merely marks on the page, quickly sketched drawing exercises to engage my senses and promote mindfulness throughout my day. Exercises may be done on your own or in a group as a warmup for an art class or workshop.

The blog includes links to Amazon products. Your purchases support this site. I receive affiliate gift cards, so I can buy some more art supplies.

If you follow along and do any of the exercises in your own sketchbook, I would love to hear your reflections on the exercise. Join thfacebook group or add comments below the posts.

What is mark making?

Mark-making describes the different marks (lines, dots, patterns, and textures) we create in a work of art.  Artists have their own vocabularies of marks.
