January 13-14, 2018: Lively Letters with Julie Wildman

from 165.00

Instructor:  Julie Wildman

Skill Level:  Beginner to Advanced

(Knowledge of at least one or two calligraphic hands is suggested.)

Online Registration:  Workshop full. Wait list registrations accepted.

Where:  Irish American Heritage Center, 4626 North Knox Avenue, Chicago

Supply Fee:  $15 per student

The goal of this class is to get intermediate and advanced calligraphers to free up their lettering, and to tap into that playful, “dancing” part inside each person. 

From monoline to brush, traditional to funky, we will explore new ways to bring life to your lettering. Using monoline tools, broad-edged nibs, pointed brushes, and unusual tools students will be led through a series of exercises that will focus not only on the lettering but on layout, composition, and the negative space that is created. Principles of design will be used as we discuss where the next letter or word should go, what makes a pleasing composition, and where and when to apply color.

We will work with black on white, white on black, walnut inks, watercolors, paint and gel pens, different papers, and create a variety of unusual tools to make great letters and marks.

Prepare to loosen up and have a wild time!
