Beginning Italic…
Have you always wanted to write beautiful invitations, greeting cards, gifts and correspondence? Italics is a beautiful, flowing and consistent style of calligraphic lettering. It is a good alphabet to begin your calligraphic education or early in your training. You will find yourself using this alphabet most often.

Mastering Italic…
This workshop will be an in-depth study of the Formal Italic Alphabet through demonstration and hands-on attention. We will study each of the components of the alphabet – what makes it look the way it does – and use this information to determine how your personal Italic can be improved. I’ve seen quantum leaps in improvement in this workshop.

You’ll learn how to fix new, old and “yucky” pens so they become “good” pens. You’ll learn how to make gouache and watercolor flow beautifully through your pen. Individual attention will help you to become your own teacher.

Italic ‘Formal to Funky’…
Starts with an in-depth review of the formal Italic alphabet. Individual attention will help to sharpen your italic hand. We will study each of the components of the alphabet – what makes it look the way it does – and use this information to determine how your personal italic can be improved. We will then use those component parts as a basis for a series of simple, fun exercises to explore the boundaries of each component. You will discover ways to give your lettering expression and personality, stretch your perception of what Italic is, and broaden your vision of what it can become to give you the tools to commit emotion to paper through lettering.
