This course investigates the power, possibilities, and meaning of mark making in drawing. Each week we approach mark making from a different perspective, contextualising our work through discussion of contemporary and historical artists who use drawing in their practice. Over the course we move from testing materials and experimenting, collecting site specific marks, through to using time and process to layer marks, and creating drawing devices and objects. Our aim is to develop a deep and vibrant visual vocabulary of mark making in drawing, using a wide and experimental range of tools, materials, and approaches, exploring the potential of both fundamental drawing materials and experimental drawing systems and processes.

Alison Hand graduated from the Royal College of Art with an MA in Painting in 2001, and is a published writer on art and architecture. She has exhibited in Germany, Hong Kong, London and across the UK, and has also curated a number of shows. Her paintings and drawings have won many awards including the Basil H Alkazzi Scholarship; the Gordon Luton Award for Fine Art; and the Stephenson Harwood Award.
