Explore drawing & sketching with inks and try out several strategies for adding color, too. Starting with traditional black inks, we will employ permanent and soluble inks using pens and brushes. I’ll demonstrate traditional brown inks and modern color inks. Focusing on techniques for line, texture, and washes, you will choose how to add color with dry media (pastels, chalks, color pencils etc.) or wet media (inks or watercolor). To bring these together, we’ll develop design strategies balancing visual richness with simplicity. Lots of feedback, helpful handouts, demos. Once registered, you’ll receive additional details and a suggested supply list.  Classes will be held inside and, weather permitting, outdoors.
