In this course we will learn and execute fundamental pen and ink drawing techniques while embracing our own personal styles. I will start the class with an open discussion to learn your interests so I can incorporate that subject matter directly into my lesson plan. Pen and ink caters to a wide variety of styles and applications. By the end of this class, you will have a solid grip on the world of pen and ink, and will be able to have a great deal of fun and confidence using the techniques and tools associated with this medium. We will also examine various pen and ink artists and their work as a way of showing just how much is possible, and how much personal style can vary once you’ve got your basics down.
