Pen Drawing for beginners

Students Artwork

Learn how to draw with confidence with a pen to render the world around you.

Many artists and illustrators draw with pens of different types in preference to a pencil. The marks are often bolder and more easily readible when reproduced in books and magazines or online. Pen drawing builds confidence to live with the marks you create instead of always reaching for the eraser to remove ‘mistakes’. It also teaches you new ways of using line, shapes and dots. A wide range of pens will be looked at including fine liners, gel-pens, biros and the traditional dip pen with a pot of ink.
