Learning Objectives:

What will I learn: How to use ideas from cultural, historical, and artistic references to create personal responses in personal artwork. (VA.68.S.1.3)

Project Info:


1. Watch and take notes from Ink Technique video. 

2. Create 3 sketches that show either cultural, historical, or artistic reference. 

3. Show your final sketch to the instructor. When it's approved get the 9x12 final paper.

4. You have 5 days to complete your final drawing using one of the inking techniques. 



Stippling-Stippling is adding countless dots to create the value of the drawing. The higher the concentration of dots, the darker the value. The more space between the dots, the lighter the value.

Hatching-Hatching is a technique used to add value in a linear fashion. The lines used in hatching mostly go in the same direction for a defined area. When hatching is used, the lines do not cross over each other.

Cross Hatching-Cross hatching is just like hatching except that the lines cross over each other. The more that the lines cross, the darker the value.  Cross hatching can be used with rigid straight lines or as cross contour lines to define the form of the object.

Random Lines-Lines going in various directions can also be used to create pen and ink drawings.  By changing the frequency of the crossing of the lines, you can control the range of value produced.
