This practical online course will focus entirely on working with ink. You’ll learn a wide range of ink applications and techniques including how to work with resists and diluents, additions, removals, the effects of different surfaces, wet on wet, and working with pen and ink. We’ll also explore how to make a range of more innovative and experimental marks in ink using some unexpected, less traditional drawing tools. You’ll be shown the work of both 20th Century and contemporary artists who use this exciting media in a variety of inspirational ways.
This short course is suitable for both absolute beginners and those with some experience who want to learn more about this highly versatile product. By the end of six sessions each student will have created a small collection of inky works on paper.
(Note: the intention of this course is to explore how to use the product/s in your creative practice, not to provide an extensive overview of the vast number of different products available.)
