Portfolio Clinics at Home: Expanded Drawing with Ink with Erin Finley

    Sunday, November 21, 2021 at 11:00 AM until 2:00 PMEastern Standard Time

    Erin Finley
    This three-hour workshop will explore techniques for drawing with fine-tip pen, dip pens, markers, and India ink. You’ll experiment with different approaches to ink-drawing while thinking about contour drawing, portraiture, graphic novels, poetry, and other creative prompts. Your instructor will guide you through several studio demonstrations aimed at helping you create detailed artworks during the workshop. Techniques such as hatching, cross-hatching, and pointillism will be covered alongside more painterly approaches to the medium. The workshop is designed to tap into your imagination and to help you utilize technical skills, but you'll also consider conceptual development, too, producing work that resonates with an audience. All levels of experience are welcome, as the workshop is designed so that everyone comes away with several new pieces.
    • Pencil (mechanical or standard) and eraser
    • Fine-tip black pen or an everyday black ballpoint pen
    • Black markers of assorted thickness
    • Ink brush or watercolour brush (one fine-tip and one larger brush)
    • Sketchbook or watercolour paper (anything stiff enough to withstand liquid mediums)
    • India ink (or black watercolour)

    • Optional: Dip pen
    Learning Outcomes:  
    • Participants will learn to experiment with ink techniques; 
    • Participants will demonstrate various mark-making approaches with wet and dry media; 
    • Participants will convey concepts in their work by using ink as a visual language that can express mood and meaning
