The basics of pen–and–ink techniques are taught through an engaging curriculum of lectures, demonstrations, and hands–on exercises. Begin your studies with a historical overview of pen and ink followed by a demonstration of the basic techniques and creation of a tone scale with stippling technique and line drawing. Continue your studies on day two through technique exercises, including hatch and crosshatch, while illustrating a leaf using these techniques. On day three you will learn texture techniques while selecting a variety of textured subjects and making three small drawings.
