About This Workshop

If you can Think It…you can Paint it…and then Write it. Let’s combine our forces of our Caligraphic scripts by adding a little spice to our lettering and introduce some beautiful backgrounds and exciting marks to enhance the words. Your own comfortable hand will be our spring-board to launch us outside the box and get a bit more creative with a little guidance. We will explore several lettering styles, discover drawn images and create interesting marks and line variations on the pages. With the right attitude, we can make the words dance on the page.
