This in-person practical course in drawing will use ink as the main medium. The materials will include contained ink such as fineliners or gel pens, as well as bottled ink with dip pens, brushes, water and a variety of alternative drawing materials.
Whilst the five sessions have been loosely divided based on medium, the individual pace of the participants will be respected, and the flow of the sessions will largely depend on their needs and interests.
1. & 2. We will begin with the more controlled drawing of fineliners and gel pens in a variety of explorative exercises to understand the medium.
3., 4. & 5. These three sessions will explore the less controlled medium of wet ink, beginning to learn this versatile medium through abstraction and moving on to drawing from life.
