I’ve recently been researching mark making as a basic human necessity, an action that is at the origin of both figurative drawing and writing by hand. According to Rhoda Kellogg, the child begins to draw basic scribbles around the age of two and follows a self-learning path. In other words, the child draws from within, not as an attempt to show reality. It emerges that the faculty of drawing is natural and instinctive and that the child has the innate ability to see a whole (gestalt), while seeing the individual parts is a capacity that is acquired with intellectual and visual exercise. The way we see the individual parts, therefore has a lot to do with the culture in which we grow up.
In this course we will explore the strength and inner rhythm of mark making and we’ll also experience non-intentional compositions as a need for visual expression, concentration, body and mind relation.
Finally, we will explore differences and similarities between the act of mark making in a condition of self-learning and the act of writing following a ductus. We will investigate repetition, linearity and the rules of form.
