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 is needed is a pen and a piece of paper, and one is ready to create!
If wanting to learn this wonderful medium, come check out the Pen and Ink Techniques and Applications classes taught by local artist Edilu Nehrbas at the Rehoboth Art League. This series of four classes is scheduled for Thursday mornings, March 28 through April 18 from 9 a.m. to noon. Through exercise and practice of pen and ink techniques such as feathering, hatching, cross-hatching and more, students in this class will create textured drawing compositions using a variety of subject matter. The cost of this series of classes is $135 for members and $170 for nonmembers.
