I started my freelance illustration career in early 2016 and began running an after school Art Club for primary school children. Starting with a 6-week 1-hour session we learned how to use inks. We studied different techniques, from ink washes with brushes, through to cross-hatching with pen and ink.
Having mastered the different techniques we completed a final piece - a still life. It's super rewarding to see their creativity and confidence grow and can be pretty funny when you're faced with questions and quotes such as:
"Miss, can I use yellow?" & "I'm good at drawing chocolate bars."
There's no end of fun to be had.
