Event description

Description

Join Samantha Testa, owner of Painted Palettes, at Shop Made in DC for an evening of hand lettering, watercoloring, and good vibes!

In this workshop, you will learn the basics of hand lettering using several pens and styles to practice. In addition, you will learn basic watercolor wash techniques to make a watercolor background. At the end of this class, you will have practiced your new skills and made a piece of art to hang in your house or give as a gift.

The workshop fee includes a personalized hand lettering workbook with several styles of lettering, 4 unique pens perfect for hand lettering, and access to shared materials necessary to create your very own watercolor (brushes, practice paper, final paper, and watercolor paints).

We'll go over the basics, so if you are a total newbie...don't worry, you've got this. If you have done some hand lettering or watercolor before but would just like some more guidance, we can make that happen, too!

Kindly note that we will not be covering traditional, dip pen calligraphy. This is a modern hand lettering class, using brush pen and watercolor techniques that are equally awesome.
