Ink for October

The Nature Artists’ Guild is participating in Inktober®2020!  The rules are simple, and joining in is even simpler.

The Nature Artists’ Guild and The Morton Arboretum are offering some upcoming opportunities for learning to use ink in interesting and enjoyable ways –

Tomorrow, October 1, 2020, Lara Call Gastinger will be giving an online presentation about nature journaling to members.  Her remarkable journal drawings in ink illustrate some of the versatility of the medium. Guild members received an e-mail on September 24 with instructions for participating.

Of course, Inktober®2020 would include the art of Sumi-e, a Japanese style of painting in black ink in which emphasis is placed on the beauty of each brush stroke. The Morton Arboretum will be offering a three-part online Sumi-e workshop, taught by Patricia Larkin Green beginning on October 8, 2020.  This workshop is open to all, not just members of the Nature Artists’ Guild or The Morton Arboretum.
