Hand-lettering, handwriting and creative lettering are all different animals and often give artists fits as to when, where and how to go about using specialty lettering to give their art journal pages a more finished look.
Whether you’re looking to learn how to use specialized lettering in headlines and title blocks, improve the overall look of your handwriting or how to combine lettering to give your pages more pizzaz, this is the workshop for you!
We’ll be working on:
- Understanding Letter Forms
- Consistency In Lettering
- How to Improve Our Handwriting
- Writing Letters vs. Drawing Letters
- Lettering Styles – Sans-serif, Serif, and Faux Calligraphy
- Making Headlines, Sub-Heads, and Title Blocks
- Making It Your Own
- Tips & Techniques
- How To Add A Touch Of Fun And Whimsy To Your Lettering
- And a bunch more lettering goodness!
A workbook of ideas, tips, techniques and styles will be provided for you to use to continue learning more about lettering as well as to encourage you to practice long after the class is over!
