Learn the basics of drawing using ink pens from professional artist Christa MacFarlane in this new class. Pen and ink drawing describes the process of using pens to apply ink to a surface. Drawing with pen and ink allows artists to create strong areas of contrast by using black inks on white surfaces which leads to heavy contrast in value. Class participants will practice these skills while creating a botanical illustration with patterns inspired by Zen Doodling. No experience is required. All supplies are provided. Teens are welcome.

Christa has a Bachelor’s in Fine Arts from the University of Kansas and has over 25 years of experience as an interior designer, graphic artist and art instructor. “Producing my own artwork with meaning is empowering and connects me to our natural world. Inspiring others through the creative process brings me joy! I hope you can join me in discovering your creative spirit that is a unique and beautiful part of you!” says Christa.
