Make your Mark


Express your response visually

Take up any drawing or painting materials that are available to you. Begin to make marks across the page as you think about what you have seen, heard and understood from your experience of the Houses of Darkness project.

You do not need to draw specific shapes and recognisable forms unless you want to. Try changing the speed that you move your hand across the page, and vary how hard or gently you press into the paper. Can you make different types of marks? How much of the paper will you cover? What colours do you feel like using? Is white space important?

All these decisions will build up a visual interpretation or response to what you have experienced. You can submit either a photo of your drawing or a digital image.
