Introduction to Pen and Ink
for Botanical Illustration

This class is now cancelled.

At a basic level, drawing is merely making marks on paper. This class builds on previous knowledge gained from intro & intermediate graphite drawing, by providing easy step-by-step instructions on how to draw using pen & ink. Learn to translate highlights & shadows to create a volume using simple pen and ink techniques such as hatching, contour-hatching, and stippling (to name a few). Hands-on exploration gives you direct experience with the materials available for pen & ink, such as dip pens (crowquill, assorted standard nibs, etc), technical pens (micron, rapidograph, ruling pen, etc) papers and inks. Also, learn how to easily ‘erase’ or tidy up your lines when needed and more! This class works with botanical subjects appropriate to the season. Artistic expression, botanical accuracy, and experimentation are encouraged. Instructor: Stephey Baker
