Drawing with Ink - Beginners

Weekend Workshop

Course description

This workshop is suitable for beginners to intermediate students.

Ink drawing is a classic art form that lends itself to both sensitivity and boldness. With its vivid lines and gentle washes, ink is a very versatile medium and lots of fun to experiment with when exploring both precise and organic application techniques.

This course is best suited for beginner and intermediate artists wishing to gain knowledge of ink drawing basics and experience with the medium in various forms and subjects.
