The Living Studio Friday Prompt! {brand new and sooo fun}

We have so many fun and amazing things planned for the Living Studio but one thing we wanted to start ASAP was a weekly Friday prompt.

Each Friday you will get an art quote and a printable prompt that hopefully will get you motivated to get your supplies out over the weekend and throughout the week.

We will share supply links, inspiring artist stories and art that goes along with the prompt.

I am only able to teach at 1-2 Living Studio retreats a year and not everyone is able to join me for an in person workshop.

I am hoping this is a fun way for us to connect each week.

My hope is that you will connect with us through our free Living Studio video series online, join the Living Studio Facebook page and share your art and start connecting with other members in your area to get out of your studio and creating art in the studio of your town, parks, cafes and museums.

Welcome to our first Living Studio Friday Prompt!

Mark making and mark making tools are some of my favorite ways to express myself through my art.

We each have a distinct way of writing our names, doodling and the marks we are most drawn to.  With practice you will soon discover the markings that authentic to you and your style.

I am including some links to supplies I use but also encourage you to look through your junk drawers and even out your front door to find everyday objects and objects from nature to bring into your art.

If you are looking for mark making inspiration I have created a Pinterest board that you may enjoy.

An artist that you may enjoy reading more about is Guy Denning. His work is such a beautiful example of intentional mark making.
