The Triangle (or Wedge) Brush has become my favorite tool for graceful florals because they complement pointed pen work so well. In this class, we will learn how to use it to achieve graceful leaf shapes, and petal shapes. Through a series of exercises, the will explore the feel and technique used to create these shapes, and then put them together to achieve beautiful tulips and magnolias.

FLOURISHING FIESTA

Tues, JUNE 8, Thurs, JUNE 10, Sat, JUNE 12 AND Sun, JUNE 13

HOSTED BY SADHIKA GUPTA 

As lace on fabric, flourishes can add life and artistic flair to hand-lettering. In this course, we will study the strong form which gives these strokes their beauty.  We will study step by step the formation of these forms and their placement in both lower case and capital letters. Some fun, stand alone flourishes with soft wedge brush florals will complete the course.

 

SUMMER BLOOMS

THURSDAY, JULY 15 AND  FRIDAY, JULY 16

11:30 am - 1:30 pm EDT (East Coast US)

The Triangle (or Wedge) Brush has become my favorite tool for graceful florals. Through a series of exercises, we will explore the feel and technique used to create leaf and petal shapes, putting them together to create geraniums and daisies.

DESIGN STUDIO

Designing with Flourished Letters

Thursdays, August 12 and 19

11:30 am - 1:30 pm EDT (East Coast US)

The first step is learning the beautiful flourished forms that can be added to letters, but after that, then what? 

This class is all about design. Using a small 4 or 5 line saying or quote, we will learn how to set lettering up, decide on line spacing, sizing and how and when to place flourished strokes in the piece.
