Though there are more convenient tools available today, some artists still cherish an old-style crow quill pen nib and a bottle of ink. Certain characteristics of these ancient media are so charming that botanical artist, Heeyoung Kim, doesn’t want to trade them for the convenience of more modern technical pens. In this 3-day workshop, she will share her techniques and tips using selected seasonal botanical specimens as subjects. Though drawing with permanent, black ink may seem intimidating, with Heeyoung's step-by-step guidance students will gain confidence, and will experience the artistic versatility of this humble medium.
