About This Class

Have you wondered what to do with your line art to give it that extra touch, to make it come alive and dance off the page?  

In my previous classes I have introduced you to creating basic shapes and arranging them into a mandala framework.  In this class we will go beyond our basic line drawings and learn some simple tricks to adding depth and dimension into our design.  First I will walk you through creating the line drawing and then I will take you step by step through applying design principles to each area of our line art to give the design the illusion of depth, and add dimension to the shapes. 

When we are done you will have created a beautiful design that appears to float on the page and you will have learned new skills you can take into your own drawings to create visually pleasing and interesting designs.

What you will need:

  • pencil
  • paper
  • eraser
  • pen - assortment of thick and thin sizes
  • download pdf framework and line art provided

The purpose of this class is to encourage you to take your line art to the next level and start to think about space in your drawings.

 If you would like to learn more about how I do my line art you can see more of that in my other classes on mandala drawing and basic shapes.

I am passionate about pen and ink drawing, with possibly too large a collection of pens :)  I find there is nothing like the relaxing sensation of a pencil gliding across the paper and the exhilarating sensation of the ink making your work come to life. I love exploring all mediums and am always trying to push the boundaries in new methods of design, but no matter what, I always come back to pencil and paper and my big box o' pens. :)
