Drawing With Pens Online Art Course

Tutored by Monika Cilmi BA, MA, PGCE.

The Drawing With Pens Course is a Certificate Course

The expected duration of this course is approximately 1 year although the college allows students up to two years to complete their studies. This course is suitable for students with previous experience in drawing and painting.

The Drawing with pens course is on the use of different types of modern pens such as felt tips, brush pens, fine liners,
graphic pens and markers.  You will find this medium is often used in illustration but also in many drawing styles in art and it can be mixed with other techniques. Using it you can create amazing effects and works of art using textures and free style for any subject.

This course will teach you the proper techniques and with the patience to learn and experiment you will be able to
advance to produce accomplished work.

This is a complete course in drawing with pens with some guidance on basic drawing techniques. We open the course with a chapter on materials, types of pens and brands and some advice on paper to use. Then we move onto some basic observational skills and working on various techniques and how to create specific textures to use on different subjects such as nature, animal, plants and landscape and even abstract.

The course is suitable for beginners as well as intermediates giving the fundamental knowledge required to work with this medium. The exercises are at various levels, some easier and some more challenging for people who are not novices.

Students are able to upload their artwork to the 'The Art Room' on our website. Each student is given a unique username and password on enrolment for their own private section in The Art Room.

Students can upload their artwork for the tutor to collect and critique. The tutor will then upload feedback for the student to download. If you do not have facilities to upload your artwork, you can mail your artwork to the tutors centre and receive your artwork back with your critique. It is essential you label all packages/artwork with your student number.

All our courses are written to be complete in themselves. However we realise that students may appreciate being able to get clarification about various things as they work through their programme as well wanting reassurance that they are putting techniques into practice effectively. The tutors provide the technical support to deal with relevant queries.

Most courses have their own dedicated Tutor. The tutor keeps the course up to date and relevant to today's students. They are available to the individual student for advice and encouragement. Each course has regular exercises and assignments that are constructed in such a way as to give the student the opportunity to practice the techniques learnt on the course and to test themselves as they go along. The student is encouraged to submit the assignment work to the college for the tutor to critique.

The student's work will be returned together with the tutor's personal critique. On many courses the assignment work may be suitable for inclusion in a student's Portfolio of Work that could be very useful later. The college will use the assignments submitted as the basis for any award of a letter, certificate or diploma.

I didn’t study arts so I am always thinking I did something wrong which I didn’t realize while drawing. I am really very happy and proud now and this gives me the push for the final round . I wanted to thank you also about the tips I got from you in my last assignment Feedback they were very helpful.
