My new website, www.wildmandesigns.com, is soon to be uploaded and will show my design, calligraphy and art work, as well as classes and workshops. But for now, please feel free to scroll and browse this blog.
Introduction to the Art of Beautiful Writing
Skill level: Beginner, but all are welcome!
This class will show you the treasures that await as we discover the fascinating world of beautiful writing—from historical manuscripts to the modern-day lettering arts, and from traditional to funky.
Students will be inspired by the many different calligraphic styles found in the pieces we'll view, and then will get to try their hand at the tools used to create those works. They will not only get to try new tools and different hands, but will also get to experiment with all sorts of beautiful papers and various media. Our time together will be fun, informative and not at all threatening, and maybe even a bit messy! Students will come away with a variety of samples that will help them begin exploring ways to create new works on their own time.
This is a great class to whet your appetite for the world of letters! And that world is going to blow your mind!
Offered through the Chicago Calligraphy Collective on June 25 & 26, in Elmwood Park, Illinois. If you're interested, please go to the CCC's workshop page here to get more information.
