Italic is a beautiful hand that can be used in formal designs or adapted for very contemporary applications. You learn it from the exemplars of your instructors, but how do you make it your own? We will begin with a study of the fundamentals of this Renaissance style and modify it to suit your needs, experimenting with forms as well as a variety of writing tools. With these basics we’ll do some exercises working with the elements and principles of design to understand how to plan and execute sophisticated designs that incorporate the variety of letters the we have studied.

Other Info

The fluidity of Italic lends itself to grace and elegance, and flourishing your letterforms gives them even more beauty. We’ll work with secrets to make your flourishes look easy by understanding their structure just as you do your letterforms. NOTE: Paypal option includes Paypal fees
