There are many applications for “Taking a Line for a Walk.”  One that engages many people working in concert is with a technique called “canning.” This is for painting lines on textiles, where an open ended can (small)  as in a a small olive can, or tomato can or anything that is small which can be open on both ends. Paint is poured into the open space, and it takes great focus to take the line for a walk, then handing it off to another person. If the circle (or can) gets lifted, the paint goes haywire. The beauty is in a wide, colorful line that can go anywhere, and can be rainbow colors, gradated colors.

Other applications at the bedside:  In a journal, take a line for a walk, in a circle
