Ink drawings can be striking and beautiful. In this class you’ll learn to use brush pens, inking brushes, felt tip pens and nib pens to create striking high-contrast images. You’ll learn how to do feathering, hatching, cross-hatching, and more.
You’ll also learn how to use a synthetic watercolor brush that produces clean, beautiful fluid lines just like those of a sable brush (but costs twenty times less).

Great class, well organized. I wish you offered it more often… I’d actually take it again. – Jerry B., Seattle
Mr. Osmar was well organized, and he is an amazing artist. I came into the class brand new at working in ink. I won’t say I’m a polished artist now but I learned some things that I know will help me improve as I practice them. I will be signing up for his other classes in winter quarter. – Jean G., Kent
This is my fourth class…. they’re really fun. I love ink drawing and I loved that we had most of the day to draw. The information about materials and types of surfaces to ink on was very helpful. Thanks! – M.J. (Seattle)
The instructor’s artwork is incredible. And I can see a big improvement in my own inking after just one day. The class is solid and helpful. – Mel R., Seattle
Good times Nils, great class! – Dave I., Seattle
