Watercolor can be used along with or in place of black ink to create casual and fun letterforms and designs. In this class we will cover the basic principles of brush lettering and use both paintbrushes and dip pen nibs to write with. Students will become familiar with using pan watercolors as well as gouache, which will be used to create our own inks for dipping. We will also practice writing on watercolor paper, which is far less smooth than most calligraphy paper and comes with its own set of challenges. Ages 17 and up.

Start a colored pencil drawing with oil paint! Underpainting with a single color of oil paint is a great base for color drawing. The underpainting quickly establishes the value structure and provides a unifying base for colors on top. Using water-soluble oil paints on paper that takes paint as well as colored pencils makes this method very practical. If you can color, you can do this – no painting experience necessary! Paint and paper are provided. A choice of subject outlines with color references will be available, or you can bring your own reference to transfer to the paper.
