ROMANCE OF THE LINE THURSDAY, FEB. 8, 11:30 AM - 1:30 PM EST FRIDAY, FEB. 9, 11:30 AM - 1:30 PM EST (East Coast United States) LEVEL ALL COURSE DESCRIPTION flourish border illustration The pointed pen produces unique, expressive ornamental strokes, and by learning to vary the pressure and curve, beautiful forms are created. In this class, we will take a look at some broader, longer flourish movements. This movement also reinforces the longer whole arm movement needed for more flourished pointed pen letters. Taking inspiration from historic ornament, we will create our own versions of the design, and add simple brush florals to complement them. Using color will give the designs a soft fluid look. This class is good for all levels, since it explores the pressure needed for shade, while giving the student experience in a long forward movement of the pen. DATE AND TIME The class will be two 2-hour sessions on Thursday, Feb. 8 and Friday, Feb. 9 via Zoom. You must load Zoom on your computer, please email me if you need help setting this up.
