About This Class

In this class, you're invited to join me on a brush pen adventure where we'll be exploring all the multitude of possibilities offered by the brush pen! 
In particular we'll be delving deep into lines and textures, and how you can create a huge array of different marks with this simple tool. I'll be showing you demonstrations of each and every technique as well as each one of the class project drawings. 
You'll be invited to create exploratory drawings to discover the breadth of possibilities offered by the brush pen, as well as abstract drawings and figurative drawings, so that you can really hone in on your inking techniques, improve your overall ink work, and push out of your comfort zones.

Just in time for Inktober, you'll be able to delve into one of my favorite tools, and whether or not you participate in the Inktober challenge, I hope you'll find the class useful, fun and inspiring! :)
