I figured out (I think) how to attach our Q & A for Session 2 -
AND I managed to do this without one of my daughters helping! HA!
I enjoyed our get together last night and LOVE seeing the pen work you are doing and getting to know you a little bit.
During class we discovered WONDERFUL information from the Art Peeps. Here are a few Take-Aways that I will be looking up:
Microsoft Snipping Tool is a way to clip an image on screen and print or save only that portion to print out (this can help to save on printer ink)
Colorscape is a phone app that you can use to turn a photo you take into a line drawing to print out.
Sketch is another tool to turn a photo in an outline drawing.
Below are a few photo stills of student work from the video.
I appreciate your time and that you are spending part of your day with me. I truly am enjoying sharing the pen & ink information with you.
Watch your email on May 25th - you can draw as you picnic on Memorial Day.
Our next Zoom will be May 28th @ 7 PM for Lesson No. 3 Q & A
Do you have a Lesson question for me?
Ask me in person tonight!

Now, I have a question for you
You can use breaks in your line work to create highlights (stars in a night sky perhaps?), and guide your viewer's eye in your drawing. How about THAT! -Julie
Hazy, shiny and smooth
Parallel lines reach out in the same direction, they can be placed quite close together but they do not cross.
Thank you to everyone who signed-on and joined the Zoom Q & A on Thursday. It was great to have feedback and to see you and your artwork. It appears that your pens are loosening-up with Lesson One and the creative juices are beginning to flow.
The virtual meeting time went by quickly (and not everyone could join us) so I am posting below "takeaways" from our session.
All of the information that I am emailing to my Art Peeps (thats YOU) can be found by scrolling on down this page. Posts are in older from newest to oldest and the videos, PDFs and photos are all here for your future reference.
Watch for READ MORE in lessons so that you don't miss any material.
Having reference material to set you off on a new direction when you are stuck on a drawing is extremely useful. You can clip images from printed materials for a physical scrapbook to flip through or you can "pin" images into a digital space and click through. In the Q&A I mentioned Clip Art ETC, an educational resource supported by the University of South Florida. The site has THOUSANDS of illustrations that will inspire and serve as a springboard for your pen an ink drawings.
During the Q&A the idea of sharing your projects was brought up. I am happy to say there is now a Pinterest Board on my page where students in the pen & ink class can post and share their projects with others in the class. To have access to "pin" to the board please contact me (Julie) and I will send you an invite so you will be able to add your work.
The button to the right will take you to the class "gallery"
I understand that life happens and meeting times may not always work for you.
The Q & A sessions are being recorded and will be posted after the meetings; this allows Art Peeps to watch at their convenience.
