Pen + Ink
Grown up art with your favorite childhood supplies
Pen & Ink is a course that is all about 3 simple tools: water, pens and inks. The course teaches you over 40 techniques using these 3 tools that are so versatile and unpredictable that you are guaranteed to create unique and fun pages every time you splash a drop of water onto your pages. But, you have been warned: these techniques are not for the perfectionist inside of you. They are for the child and the wild, loud, rampaging artist inside of you who desires nothing more than to sling, swipe, splatter, pour, throw and fling paint into this world. If you are ready to let that child out, follow your teacher, Jules, into the amazing world of pen and inks and she will show you beauty in the unpredictable and the free flowing. Her style is loud, bold, fun and bright and will make you cry out in joy as you delve into her technicolor world. This course is perfect for anyone who is ready to let your inner artist child take the reigns and Get Messy.
The lessons in this course are not prescriptive but are open to interpretation. The purpose of these techniques is to inspire you to be more creative on your page with these simple products from your childhood and adding new go to skills to your art journal toolbox. You can use these new ideas to build a wealth of background pages, to simply play or to actively finish a page every time you learn a new technique.
