What to Expect:

Create sketches using the expressive and efficient technique of combing ink lines with watercolor washes. Combine pen and ink with watercolor, and something special happens on the paper. The black ink is perfect for capturing details and structure in an immediate and graphic style. The watercolor adds not only color, but a flowing atmospheric quality. Even for complete beginners, by following a few guidelines, the sum is greater than the parts. No wonder this technique has become so popular for urban sketching, nature journaling, figure drawing and more.

Would you like to be able to create colorful sketches from your everyday life, from your travels, or even from your imagination? Each class will have a different subject matter and will cover different variations on the combination of line a wash. Tora will demonstrate each new technique and provide hands on assistance within a small class size.


The workshop takes place in the Denizen co-working space on Köpenicker Str. 40. If you would like to make use of the co-working space before the workshop starts, you are welcome to purchase a walk-in day-pass for 15 Euros, as a special offer to workshop participants.
