About This Class


Not just a how to draw class -- let me introduce you to my WHY to draw philosophy!

Materials (suggested)

Pencils: Mechanical or other draw-friendly pencil (I like standard lead, use what you prefer). The fancy mechanical pencil I use in the class is the Pilot Opt. 0.5

Pens: permanent ink preferred. The class pen is a Platinum Preppy with Platinum Carbon ink. Also useful are Microns, dip pens, Pitt Artist Pens, that ubiquitous Pentel Brush Pen or an actual brush and india ink. 

Ink: Platinum Carbon cardriges or bottle ink, Dr. PH Marten India Inks (I use Blackstar hicarb and matte) or whatever you can find. Make sure it is waterproof when dry! 

Color: Watercolor set, colored pencils, alcohol markers, crayons, whatever is handy. Or go crazy and keep it all black and white. 

Paper/Sketch Books: I use Moleskien drawing books, Plumb sketch books from Knock Knock, “bank” paper books and loose paper from L!fe (Japan), and Canson Mixed Media. Feel free to use anything from copy paper to cold press watercolor or the backs of wedding invites (they always use great paper). 

You can find links to these items and more on my Pintrest Board made specially for this class. 

Artists I mention in this class (in case you want to check them out):

Tove Jansson, creator of The Moomins
