Bamboo Pen & Ink Drawing

10 AM – 12 PM
Taught by Caitlin Allen

Learn to sketch with India ink and a bamboo pen in this introductory class. As one of the oldest writing and drawing tools, the bamboo pen or "reed" pen lends itself to bold and expressive strokes. Caitlin will guide you through the basics of making marks with your reed pen and ink, as well as techniques to add texture and depth to your work. Students will practice drawing images in the style of artists like Vincent van Gogh and Charlie Mackesy. You will leave class with several practice drawings as well as your bamboo pen and ink to continue sketching.
