This course explores a range of writing practices throughout history. Join experienced drawing instructor Jack Whisenant to learn and practice different styles of calligraphy and hand lettering. Participants will also explore and consider how a word is written might affect meaning in artistic practices. Students will also have the opportunity to cut a feather nib and embellish their lettering with gold leafing (material provided by instructor).
These are a sampling of supplies that are used in lettering practices.
- Pilot Parallel Pen (orange cap size = 2.4 mm size)
- Speedball holder with flexible pointed nib
- Strathmore Bristol: Smooth surface (at least 8 sheets)
