Description: Whether using it graphically in comics, lightly in atmospheric ink wash illustrations, or using it to create wild textures, ink drawing holds a variety of exciting techniques. In this 8 week course, we will experiment with a variety of inking methods learning from in-class demos and sketchbook exercises. Halfway through the course, you will have the chance to apply your new inking skills to work on a 4-week project, which will be a great addition to any portfolio, or even just for your sketchbook!
