OCAG195 The Art of Asemic Writing & Watercolor

July 15 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm


This is a 4-week class. Mondays July 8, 15, 22, 29; 9:30-12:00pm Students Choice Watercolors or Acrylics (wc-adult, acrylic-adult, abstract, mixed-media). Instructor: Leona Lavone (summer, wc-adult)


Asemic writing is markings whether it be scribbles, scratches, brush strokes, symbols or stitching that resemble handwritten words and sentences, but have no recognizable content, words or meaning. They are simply visual elements often used in mixed media and abstract artwork. The nature of asemic writing often results in patterns, therefore can be a way of incorporating texture to artwork.


The process of Asemic writing takes us back to the primitive and child like scribbles before we learned how to write, helping us tap into our innate artistic nature. Because of its rhythmic and repetitive process, it can also be a mindful and meditative practice.


Join me as we explore a variety of techniques utilizing different writing tools as well as explore different writing methods to shift the feel and look of your asemic writing. You will then use your pieces to create your one of a kind Watercolor Paintings.


Bring basic watercolor supplies.
