Hand Lettering

What is the difference between handwriting, lettering, fonts, and calligraphy? Why use hand lettering instead of type? In an increasingly digital world, a desire for the hand drawn image is on the rise.

Working with the drawn letter, students will gain an under- standing  of  letterform  construction,  proportion,  rhythm, and the value of negative space through a series of exercises and assignments. We will explore in a variety of styles, focusing on the expressive qualities of hand lettering with emphasis on preserving a human and handmade quality in clean, professional looking, and fully custom lettering work. Contemporary and historic typographic resources will be explored for inspiration. Digitization techniques in Adobe Illustrator will also be covered.

Cost: $120

Come along for a visual exploration of the organic, imperfect charm of plants and flowers. Using simple drawing media and working from live specimens, we will create visual studies on paper. Students will experiment with drawing techniques, develop an understanding of the shapes and forms that make up various plants and flowers, learn basic principles for what makes a drawing beautiful and interesting, and create at least one finished piece of their own botanical artwork.

Basic drawing skills are a plus, but all levels are encouraged to attend.
