Event organized by M-Arts

#var:page_name# cover

The workshops will focus on the fundamentals of Illustration, through watercolour with pen and ink and exploratory guided drawing.

Through sketching and building up an image Leith will guide the workshop attendees through their own creative process and explore tone, depth, texture and colour while learning watercolour techniques such as dry brushing, wet brushing, brush types and textures. In addition to this, we will be working on pen and ink techniques to work our pictures up to a finished piece.
