This weeks challenge is a bit different. All students must have access to a ball point pen! We would like to you go and find one of any colour, blue, black or red and see if you can draw a picture with it. You can draw anything you like, as long as its only with the pen. You can use different colour pens if you would like.
Have a look at the link – Pen Artwork and Ballpoint Pen for inspiration. It is amazing how much detail and realism you can gain using them. We are very much looking forward to seeing what you all come up with!
The images below were drawn by artist Annabelle Marie to give you some inspiration. The inclusion of the pen is very clever don’t you think!
All students can take part and they can post their artwork on our main Facebook Group to share with fellow students.
If you would like your work included in our weekly Thursday blog post Email it to Melanie on
Please only post new artwork that you have created specifically for the challenge.
The idea of these challenges is to help students improve their skills by drawing, painting and creating regularly. Most of all, have fun!!
