Brush Marker Lettering
Learn modern calligraphy in this introductory class! This class is suitable for beginners (no experience necessary), but also for those who have been practicing on their own and would like to learn proper technique. In this class, we will cover the basics of using a dip pen, nibs and ink, basic upstrokes and downstrokes, the lowercase and uppercase alphabet, and the basics of combining letters into words. A simple modern alphabet will be used. You will learn HOW to write letters, not simply copy them, so that you can practice at home with confidence. You will receive a starter kit which includes a dip pen, two different nibs, a small pot of ink and a workbook. 3 hour workshop.
Intro to Watercolor Brush Lettering
Learn the beautiful art of watercolor brush lettering in this workshop! Upstroke and downstroke techniques will be taught, and students will be introduced to a simple lettering alphabet suitable for this more flowing style of lettering. Students will be working with a waterbrush and a watercolor palette. We will learn to blend the colors into each other for a gorgeous mixed colored look. By the end of this workshop, students will take home their own watercolor saying, along with being able to keep the waterbrush and palette. A handbook with instructions will also be included. This is an introductory course, so no experience is required! 3 hour workshop.
