19R235GL-A - Hand Lettering for Chalkboards and More

19R235GL-A - Hand Lettering for Chalkboards and More


 

Lettering is a form of voice … a way of expression. Let it speak the things you want to say. In general, most people see words and read sentences to derive meaning. In art, we see beautiful shapes and curves with forms of beauty. Be fascinated by its power, the power of words. Today (thanks to computers) there are many styles of letters to choose from and we take it for granted that there are many different ways to express our written documents. Just look at signs and advertising around you. The written word can be pretty creative! When you create beautiful lettering, it captures the attention of your audience. What is your message? What will you say? Use this opportunity to speak messages of positivity and encouragement! It's helpful to become familiar with the anatomy of a letter. In this workshop, you will take a close look at fonts including script or cursive, serif and sans serif styles and learn how to create messages in color and also on chalkboards. Hand lettering is all about drawing! Create the letters to say what you want!

Materials fee includes paper, chalk, ink, watercolors, and assorted supplies.

Level: Beginner and above

Pencils, eraser, 18" ruler, favorite quotes or sayings, sketchbook or notebook
