July 8-9, 2017:  Design and Interpretation for Extraordinary Letters

Instructor:  Liesbet Boudens

Skill Level:  Intermediate to Advanced

REGISTRATION IS OPEN

Where:  Temple Beth El, 10001 Columbia, Munster, IN, 46321

Fee:  CCC Members $165/ non-CCC Members $195

Our aim is to create powerful work using a chosen poem, phrase or sentence. We will start with Romans as a basis for built-up lettering and create small pencil sketches. Liesbet will use examples of her own pieces to take us through the initial design process. Using a copier to substantially enlarge our text we will refine and rework the letters. At several stages we will be talking as a group about the work of each student. As we develop our own style of drawn letters, each with unique character, we will study the meaning of our individual texts to suggest the goal will be to create a finished, expressive piece, with a very personal flavor for our words, painted in gouache or watercolor.

July 10, 2017:  Creating a Personal Monogram

Instructor:  Liesbet Boudens

Skill Level:  Intermediate to Advanced

Online Registration Opens:  March 6, 2017, 10 a.m. CT

DO NOT REGISTER UNTIL OPEN

Where:  Temple Beth El, 10001 Columbia, Munster, IN, 46321

Fee:  CCC Members $82.50/ non-CCC Members $112.50

A monogram is a unique personal design composed by two or more interwoven letters, mostly the initials of a name, sometimes adding a decorative element or a small frame.

During this one-day workshop, we will examine the best and most interesting combination of different lettertypes by making several small pencil sketches all the while considering their style, unity, contrast and color, sometimes adding a decorative element or frame.

Liesbet will use examples of her own pieces to take us through the initial design process. The goal will be to create a finished attractive piece, with a very personal flavor, painted in gouache.
