Griffin, Margot

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.
