About the course:

Moths can be a fascinating and often unseen insect of the night. In this workshop, we will unearth the mysterious moths of the ACT and cover the basics of life-drawing and moths, sketching and lining in pen, and using brightly coloured inks in a variety of ways. We’ll also cover introductory colour theory and composition. Then combine these skills to produce a final piece which uses all we have learnt over the workshop.

This workshop is perfect for beginner artists, or those who want to build their confidence and make some fun, expressive art. If you have attended other Pretty in Ink classes, then this is a chance to continue practicing and developing your skills in inks. No prior experience is necessary.
