The process of using pen and ink to make a drawing is practically as old as art itself, dating back to 7th and 8th century China.
It is one of the most visually intense and compositionally complex forms of drawing. At the same time, aside from pencil, pen-and-ink drawing is probably the most portable, convenient and low-cost form of art making. All that’s needed is a pen and a piece of paper to be ready to create.
Rehoboth Art League will offer Pen & Ink Techniques and Applications, a class taught by local artist Edilu Nehrbas, from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m., Thursdays, Feb. 2, 9, 16 and 23. Through exercises and practice of pen-and-ink techniques such as feathering, hatching, cross-hatching and more, students will create textured drawing compositions using a variety of subject matter. The cost is $185 per person.
To register, go to rehobothartleague.org or call 302-227-8408, Ext. 112.
All classes are held at the Rehoboth Art League, located at 12 Dodds Lane, Henlopen Acres.
