Freehand Drawing means drawing from life without any pencil sketches underneath. Blank pages are scary in a delicious way, watching images appear from nothing is thrilling, and the rhythm of observing and making marks is centering. In this class, you will learn to tap into this meditative experience by learning to look, training your hands and drawing simple objects and figures. This class is just right if you are a beginning drawer, or if you want to loosen up your drawing style.

Series Two: Adding Shadows and Shading to Pen Drawings.

This class will focus on adding shading and shadows to freehand drawings. We will quickly review and practice freehand drawing techniques and exercises, and then delve into making sense of shadows. The jumble of tones in an image will resolve into a pattern that makes sense, and you will be able to choose to render shadows in all their complexity or simplify them in a way that still looks “right.”.  We will also learn different ways to draw shadows.

Class 1: Shadow Basics + classic pen techniques

Class 2: Curved surfaces  + toned marker

Class 3: Complicated Light Sources + ink wash


  • Multimedia sketchbook that can handle wet media. I like a size that is at least 7” by 9”
  • Insoluble ink pens, such as micron.
  • Soluble ink pens, such as Flair pens or any sumi ink pen. I like Kuretake Fude pens
  • Grey brush markers in at least three tones.
  • Waterbrush or paint brush
  • Sumi ink, or black or grey watercolor
  • A lamp you can aim, such as a clip-on lamp or a gooseneck lamp. A flashlight will work in a pinch.
