SCH Late Spring 2017 Workshop: Peeling Back the Layers with Suzie Beringer

On June 3, 2017 the Society for Calligraphy & Handwriting (SCH) will be sponsoring the workshop, “Peeling Back the Layers with Suzie Beringer” in Renton, WA.

In this workshop we will unravel the mysteries of creating depth in your art with the use of film. You will be shown how to “jazz” up your layouts and create art that your viewers will want to “dive” into. Learning about seeing things differently is part of this workshop – taking art/lettering that you have already done and creating something that is different and exciting.

Suzie Beringer is a calligrapher who makes her home in the Pacific Northwest. She has a degree in commercial art and a lifetime passion for calligraphy.

For more information and the registration form, please view the workshops page on our website. There are only 15 spots available, so send in your registration today. We look forward to seeing you there!
