‘Walking the Line’
Exploring the quality of line using landscape as a theme.

Module Three

Line, once described as ‘taking a dot for a walk’ can be drawn in many different ways. Using different mark making tools and materials different moods can be portrayed by the artist. A soft straight line creates and impression of calm and peace. Strong dark diagonals portray movement or anger. Landscape, both country and town, provides ever changing lines and colours as time and weather, night or day, sun or cloud play on the world around us. Techniques covered in this module will include 1. Mark making with a range of tools and materials 2. Drawing landscapes and townscapes 3. String prints 4. Combining collage and line (mixed-media) 5. Customising pages with holes and joins The art works of Paul Klee, Wassily Kandinsky, Friedensreich Hundertwasser and David Hockney will provide inspiration in this module. All of the work in this module contributes to your first certificate assessment piece ‘customize a purchased sketchbook to interpret a stated source of design inspiration’.
