Ink on toned paper is reminiscent of the work of early western naturalists. In this four-week intermediate class, you will
- create drawings that are both modern and classic, using natural tones of, ink and paper,
- learn rendering techniques, such as hatching and ink wash,
- use white gouache to add vibrancy and dimension to your artwork.
Each week will include demonstrations from your instructor and time to work on your pieces, with one-on-one feedback. Class members will work from plant specimens in the classroom as well as from photographs to create three to four pieces of work over the course of the class. See What to Know for details about supplies.
