Medium: Drawing
Level: All levels (beginner, intermediate, advanced)

In this five-part class, overcome your trepidation around the “permanence” of ink drawing and learn to embrace the huge potential of this versatile medium! Become familiar with different types of pens (bamboo, stick, quill, markers), learn to use brush and wash, and explore the complete repertoire of line-making including gesture, contour, hatching, developed or “worked-over” lines, and free-style or “searching” lines. Study wet-on-wet and wet-on-dry techniques using washes. Broaden your experience of drawing to expand upon realistic rendering, and introduce more expressionistic means of working that carry over into all forms of painting and advanced drawing.

Instructor Pamela Lanza has an MFA from the San Francisco Art Institute. Before relocating to Asheville, she taught at UC Berkeley Extension’s Post-Baccalaureate Art Studio program and San Francisco Art Institute for 20 years.
