Event Details

This class meets on Saturday/Sunday: July 15 & 16, 2017

10:00 am to 4:00 pm

Our aim is to create powerful work using a chosen poem, phrase or sentence. We will start with Romans as a basis for built-up lettering and create small pencil sketches. Liesbet will use examples of her own pieces to take us through the initial design process. Using a copier to substantially enlarge our text we will refine and rework the letters. At several stages we will be talking as a group about the work of each student. As we develop our own style of drawn letters, each with unique character, we will study the meaning of our individual texts to suggest the shape and color of the lettering. Our goal will be to create a finished, expressive piece, with a very personal flavor for our words, painted in gouache or watercolor.
