Description

Hosted by Kristen Drozdowski of Worthwhile Paper

Join me on this October new moon for a holistic take on lettering. We will explore the fun and freestyle art of brush lettering with technical instruction in the context of self-healing through the power of positive words. This is a practice you can continue for years after the workshop. Our class will begin with a short and quiet visualization & journal exercise as we move into coming up with a short, simple message to yourself that feels meaningful to you and healing to any current challenges you may be facing, big or small*. If you can't think of anything, I have a stockpile of encouraging phrases to choose from, and can definitely help you come up with a unique one! Next we will go over some basics on brush lettering and how to come up with your very own expressive brush lettering pieces, no lettering experience required. There will be plenty of practice paper in the Worthwhile Paper sketchbook you will receive, and no pressure to create the most beautiful piece of work ever - it's not so much about the outcome as it is the process. You will leave here with a basic understanding of how to draw letters with a paint brush, lettering tools to practice with, and hopefully a refreshing sense of how to express your emotions with lettering and cultivating personal joy through a creative process. This is something I do for myself all of the time, and I want to share my experience with you!

*It is absolutely not required that you share your personal reasons behind your lettered message with the group - this is a safe space.

Materials included in the workshop (you get to keep!)
One 8.5 x 11 Worthwhile Paper sketchbook
A paintbrush for lettering and a pencil

Light refreshments will be included as well.

Limited to 12 spots.
