CEDR 101 SU01: Introductory Pen + Ink

Jun 3
Jul 29

Take a classic, black-and-white approach to the expressive medium of pen and ink drawing. Through exercises and step-by-step tutorials, you will learn to create a range of work, from photo-realism to abstraction and everything in between. Work with a range of pen points using bistre and sepia inks, as well as combinations of ink and watercolour. Experimentation with ink and wash will be introduced as you explore tone, texture, line and stroke, gesture and calligraphy, proportion and visual balance.
