Learn to create hand drawn and painted tattoo designs, in a class for all levels. This class is for everyone, from the tattoo appreciator, to the tattoo collector, and for anyone wanting to learn traditional illustration techniques.
It is a great way for everyone to get together, and learn something unique. This is not a digital class, it is hands on, immersive classic illustration. Put the tablet away, and get back to the more classic method!

This is not your typical painting class! We supply everything needed to replicate a classic design. Each attendee will receive a kit composed of professional quality materials used in traditional illustration and design.
The class starts with an introduction to the materials and guidance on station set up. Walking attendees through each step, the instructor ensures participants feel confident using the materials to draw and ink their chosen design. From there, the class will trace and then ink their chosen design*. To ensure a successful product, chosen designs have been lightly printed on the watercolor paper for everyone to trace, and we have included an extra design, “just in case.”
The average run-length of the class is approximately an hour, but run times vary with attendees' level of engagement. There is always time for questions and extra help, so that everyone leaves with a finished piece of art. Although some parts may be a bit challenging, this class is a fun way for everyone to get together and learn new skills!
