Come learn the exciting art of hand lettering! Students will learn a new style each week, such as calligraphy, 3D block lettering, and fun and funky fonts. We will focus on composition, perspective, color theory, and taking our time to make neat letters. After the last class, each student will have completed a finished, framed piece of their own design. Students will also take home their calligraphy pen and ink so that they can continue to practice long after the class is over. A $15 material fee is payable to the instructor on the first day of class. A happy coincidence of artistic lettering is pride in perfect penmanship! Instructor: Sarah Eblin, CARD Community Center, Arts & Crafts Room.
