Word Play


Wednesday, February 20

9:30 am - 4:30 pm

Thursday, February 21

9:30 am - 4:30 pm


A lettering artist's favored focus, the words, combined with time spent on developing our skills with the delicacy and refinement of the pressure and release drawn letterform, will be the starting point of this workshop. Working with the only set perimeter of our design, a square framework, our goal will be the design of a word-painting within that confined space, using letterforms to break up the spaces within our painting, creating a tension between shapes within the square and providing defined areas for color. Collage elements will also be used as a component in the design process.
