Courses Taught by Gina:

Drawing in Pen and Ink: This course is perfect for the budding artist who doesn’t like to paint or sculpt and has an affinity for the classic look of a black and white image. Students will learn how to hold their pen as well as how to use textures. Understanding value scales and lighting, which are necessary elements in a pen and ink drawing, are also discussed. Students will have an opportunity throughout the course to draw a still life, animals, landscapes, and more, while using image references to guide them.
