Calligraphy 4: Alternative Applications & Beyond: May 10-June 15


Calligraphy Four: Alternative Applications & Beyond with Anne Elser 6 Sessions | Advanced | Price: $160 | Max.15ARTZ16310 | Wednesdays, May 10 – Jun 15, 6 – 8:30pm

Calligraphy Four was created for those who are looking to improve layout and lettering skills upon alternative surfaces. We will also learn brush and monolinear lettering using oil-based sharpie markers on glazed ceramics, fabric and plastic, fabric markers, pencils, gel pens, and brushes upon a variety of surfaces and textures. If you have taken Copperplate, Italic, Cursive Crush, Calligraphy 3, Advanced 1, or are comfortable with any calligraphic hand, you are ready for this class.

Projects Included:
Monolinear Lettering: using different fonts to intermix with your calligraphy. Balance, expression, and variety - the letters you've been making all your life can work beautifully with your calligraphy. Discover double-lining your letters and pimping the down stroke as well as lettering the same quote in different styles and using a tracing technique to build a complex arrangement of different lettering styles into one cohesive collage. 
Brush Lettering: Whether painting on a person, paper, fabric, wood, leather, or canvas, you'll learn to brush with confidence with some standard practice strokes and different techniques for painting a live letter vs. a sketched letter. 
Envelopes: Literally pushing the possibilities of envelope design. Deconstructing existing formats to create a unique space for your custom message, flaps, folds, liners, windows and reveals. 
Chalkboard Paint: Smudge-proof, forgiving and colorful, Liquid Chalkboard markers are sexier than you think.

Detailed Supply Lists will be given after first class and before each project. Supplies to bring to first class are pencil, calligraphy pens, ink, ruler, scissors, glue, tape, and transparent maker paper.
