This one day workshop is suitable for artists of all levels.
Using pen and ink techniques, you’ll learn to create a journal in words and images.
Mainly, you will learn different techniques for using an ink pen to sketch and draw and doodle away
Learn design concepts for decorating pages that please the eye and add a little fun to even the most humdrum of drawings
Learn to create and use your own natural lettering style in an artful way, almost like those monks who illuminated ancient texts, except quicker and less fussy and actually, not as pretty. But YOURS.
Learn how to choose what to record in your journal, how to tell fragments of your own story on paper with drawings, words and precious scraps from your days
Learn to enjoy the freedom expressing yourself without interference from that harsh self-critic that keeps demanding perfection of you


All supplies will be provided.  They are yours to take home with you after class (yay!).
Bring a sack lunch, or go next door to the university center cafe (about $9)
Enrollment deadline:  Tuesday, February 10

About bigbendartist

I live and paint on a historic ranch southwest of tiny Fort Davis, Texas. My passion for dramatic Texas skies comes from two decades spent in the cockpit of a corporate jet. (Viewing the world from 41,000 feet made clouds real to me. Sometimes, too real!) The vast wild landscapes of the high desert and borderlands of Far West Texas are in my native Texan blood, so that's what I paint. "A sense of place," art historian Michael Duty calls this connection of artist to land, and I feel privileged to embrace it. I've had little formal fine art training, though I've painted professionally most of my adult life. The places I paint are all landscapes I've experienced, usually accompanied by my husband Jim, a rescued terrier and my sidekick African Grey parrot, who lends encouragement on a wing and a prayer.
