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). We begin with an in depth lesson on drafting properly shaped block letters and progress to painting them with a brush. Then we move on to learning and painting the signpainter's casual letterstyle. Lettering tricks- outlines, highlights & shades (have some fun with colors)
All students will take home a Studio Signs casual alphabet exemplar 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!
