Sketching in Pen and Color

Artists’ fine line markers are great for quick sketches. Drawing in pen means letting go of perfectionism and going with the flow – of ink! Add color – with a few colored pencils, watercolor pencils, pastels or watercolors – and create fresh and lively artwork or fill a journal. Forget erasing and fixing things, just loosen up and have fun drawing! The first day, experiment with pen techniques and adding color; the second day we’ll sketch outdoors. (Weather permitting.)
