About the event

Intro to hand lettering with brush & paint. This 2 day workshop will cover: Quick history lesson about Studio Signs and the sign painting trade. Brush & paint education (discuss different types of brushes, paints, & reducers) Basic brush handling & strokes (how to mix paint, pallete and pull strokes) Sign painting posture & breathing techniques (proper form & focus) Basic letterforms- block & casual (practice, practice, practice), plus an in depth lesson on drafting properly shaped block letters. Lettering tricks- outlines, highlights & shades (have some fun with colors)

All students will take home an alphabet painted by Studio Signs as  well as your very own lettering brush and mahlstick so you can continue  practicing.  Remember, practice is the most important key to lettering  success.  And of course you get to keep all of the practice sheets you  can paint!

Attendees will get live demos & instruction, one-on-one learning,  printed handouts and plenty of hands-on experience.  The class is  taught in a fun, encouraging environment and the workshops are always an  enjoyable and memorable time.
