Sharon Grader & Victoria Foster Harrison - Mark Your Words 101: Adding Asemic Marks & Abstract Calligraphy to Any Art Medium (Online Class Recording)

Date Recorded: Friday, March 12, 2021

What is Asemic Writing and How Do You Add it to Your Art?

Asemic writing is a wordless form of writing without meaning. It allows you to create your own distinctive visual voice and opens the viewer to their personal interpretation. This form of abstract calligraphy is fun and can energize your work. Take a break and join us for demonstrations of creative inspiration with beginning Asemic writing techniques. This will be the first of many Asemic writing demonstrations.

Sharon Grader

Exploration and experimentation are major elements of her artistic journey of discovery. She is an abstract encaustic painter drawn to the elemental aspects of molten wax. She often works with found objects, dyed silk, rusted paper, encaustic monoprinting, watercolor, oil, and pastels. She is fascinated with the creative process and the constant wonder that surprises her every day. Her work is disciplined, yet free and unexpected, calm and thought provoking. She is a graduate of the Artist Trust Edge program and a member of Women Painters of Washington. You can find her work at the Lynn Hanson Gallery, Pioneer Square, Seattle. https://www.sharon-bill-grader.com

Victoria Foster Harrison

An Encaustic Printmaker (creating one-of-a-kind monotypes with beeswax and paper), Victoria embraces the wabi-sabi theory of “perfectly imperfect” in her urban collages and contemporary landscapes. A right brain – left brain thinker, her work is a combination of active detail along with calm atmospheric fields of soft rustic texture. Displayed on cradled panels, her collage work often incorporates the original monotypes along with photographs on silk organza, paper ephemera, mark-making, calligraphic strokes and book spines. She is a working artist and teaches out of her home studio in Port Townsend, WA. Victoria is represented by the Grover Gallery in Port Townsend and also at the Bainbridge Arts & Crafts Gallery on Bainbridge Island, WA. https://www.curlygirlartstudio.com
