Creativity with ink activity

Hi guys, sorry for not posting for a couple days, we were having maintenance on the blog but I’m glad to see it’s back now. Today’s creative activity involves ball point pens. An art supply I’m sure most of you have thousands of, these can produce some amazing and quick bits of art work. The trick is to draw as you normally would with a pencil, but switch it out with a ball point pen then, when you’re ready to shade: the scratchier the texture the better. This activity also relies on you keep going with your piece of work no matter what, even if you think it’s rubbish, it will turn out great. I have added below some pictures for inspiration and the last photo is of some pieces of work I have actually done in order to show you how using different coloured together is quite effective.

Any bits of work you would like to show me, please email a photo of you and your work to the office and it will be forwarded to me.

Have fun!
