XX 👩🏻‍🎨 and Xinging ✏️ LINES

Read other x blogs.
XX and X-ing love, loving, and loved the lines and love yourself, as an artist; and feel good enough to exhibit your creations for viewing. 

Get ready! (motivate) Look at the environments and the art of others for the fundamentals.
Get set! (prepare) Reading about the fundamentals and exploring possibilities.
Go! (explore) Create a composition with your available art supplies and your work with your imagination.
Finish! (organize) Display your art pieces show to viewers, BRAG!

Now on to other mediums you can use for drawn art. Our finger, brushes, or tools do the line work; we organize the line into the forms.

Material: the substance which made the medium.
Mediums: the specific art materials used.

Building: cut paper or cardboard, fabrics, rug pieces, or found objects with paint and glue;

Carving: plaster, clay, wood;
Cut and paste: fabrics and papers with texture and  color;
Computer: drawing, designing;
Drawing: chalks on dry or wet paper, felt pens, pen and ink, oil pastels, charcoal, and Conte crayons, wax crayons;
Molding: clay, play dough, plastalina;
Painting: dry tempera cakes, wet tempera, watercolors, finger paints, oils, acrylics;
Printing: ink brayer, wood, copper, string, potato, stamps;
Sewing: quilts, stuffed toys, pillows, stitchery, embroidery,
Weaving: crochet, cardboard, paper, loom.

These are few traditional mediums used. There are also videos and movies which are done on lines and within frames. I like to think of these as the massing shapes, space, and textures of dots and pixels into overlapping movement. Stagnant works of art in frames run together. A photo is one part of the action or a single art piece.


Send assignments via the 'ART for DRAWN LINES' message on this page. I will send the email address for you to include your drawing, titles with the letter, which I will post on this blog.

Also, any comments, suggestions, other observations, or ideas are welcome. Art is to share; we are all artists and creative.
