Concord Art Association
Since 1917, the Concord Art Association has been a center for the visual arts in Concord, Massachusetts. Founded by the American impressionist painter, Elizabeth Wentworth Roberts, the association moved to the c.1750 Jonathan Ball House purchased by Miss Roberts in 1922. Concord Art Association seeks to promote and support contemporary art and artists through exhibitions and educational programming. Concord Art Association is a non-profit, membership-based organization, comprised of artists, educators and supporters of the arts. Membership is inclusive, providing avenues of exposure and training to students and professionals alike. Members of the Concord Art Association work in a variety of styles and media including painting, printmaking, photography, fiber and sculpture.
I've been using Koh-I-Noor Rapidograph Technical Pens since 1969. My aunt bought me my first set when I was 12 and I have used them daily ever since. I love the fact that I can mix my ink colors to match my watercolor or my wardrobe and use "Pelikan Drawing Ink A" almost exclusively. Though the inks made by Koh-I-Noor and Winsor Newton are satisfactory.
If you are a beginner, I would NOT recommend purchasing anything smaller than an 0 (0.35 mm). Even as a professional I find cleaning a 4x0 to be a challenge. I work most often with a 2x0, and find them to produce the smoothest flow, if kept clean.
As a cartoonist, I've found only the 100 nib to be one
that acts like a brush in that it gives me the thick and thin line that I desire, and a very thin line as well. It
handles well and is very flexible.
