You’ve got to draw the line somewhere—but where do you start? Here!

There are no pencils or erasers allowed in this class. Instead you will automatically be handed your pen licence upon arrival. With pens inked and brushes dipped, Melbourne artist Simon O’Carrigan will teach you the many ways you can make marks on paper to create interesting drawings. 

After a few demos you will get to jump right in, test out different tools and techniques and experiment to see what is possible.

“But what if I make a mistake, in permanent ink?” you ask. No problem! Simon will teach you how to use those marks and mistakes to give your drawing a style and character unique to you and your drawings, showing you methods to build up a drawing gradually so you’ll never want to use a pencil again.

So if you are a complete beginner or a professional who wants to loosen up your practice, this class will push you to be brave with your brush and express your voice via ink on paper.

Please note: This class requires at least five students to run. In the unlikely event that we don't get this number of students, we'll cancel the class and fully refund you and inform you via email, so please watch your email a few days prior to the class



Aside from this class, this teacher also has the following coming up:


What you'll get

  • Confidence in your own line drawing, and a degree of comfort drawing in ink on paper

  • Reference materials to draw from

  • All materials to be used in the workshop (pens, brushes, dip pens, various types of paper)


What to bring

We’ll supply all the core materials you’ll need to undertake the class. If you like, you are welcome to bring along any further things you might want to use or get tips on using such as:

 • An object or prop to make a still life drawing of

 • Any of your sketchbooks to work in

 • Any favourite pens you like to write or draw with

 • If you’re a fountain pen user, bring that along

You don’t need to bring confidence, but be prepared to leave with it!

I’m an illustrator with a background in fine arts and indie animation. Even though my professional work moves across lots of mediums, I prefer to work with pen, brush and ink on paper. There’s a freshness and looseness that comes with these techniques, and with the risk of no drafting! I believe drawing is by nature fast and loose, and that the most fun (and best work) comes out of approaching drawing in this way.

I have studied at the Victorian College of the Arts, Monash University School of Art, and the College of Fine Arts at The University of New South Wales. Since graduating in 2007, I’ve staged fourteen solo exhibitions, and shown his animated films in over twenty festivals worldwide. I’ve even had the honour of judging the Melbourne International Animation Festival.

These days I work on lots of projects including private commissions, fine art prints, murals, independent exhibitions, and illustrations for editorial, books and magazines.
