SCH Fall 2021 Workshop – Beautiful Brush Script & Pictorial Design with Linda Schneider
Date: November 6th & 7th, 2021
Time: 9:30 AM to 4:30 PM Pacific
Location: Online via Zoom
The beauty of a brush marker is you can leave your dipped pointed pen at home, carry the brush markers with you to practice, write thank you notes on location, and write people’s names as immediate gifts. People will be amazed just watching you create outside your studio! We will focus on English-Roundhand and will have lots of handouts so you can continue to learn after the workshop. Every letter in the alphabet will be practiced and critiqued using historical scripts as a guide line. We will also learn some ornate pictorial calligraphic flourishes that can go with your lettering. Just think no pen holders, nibs or ink to spill! Every color in the rainbow can be used without a mess and it is inexpensive and addictive because the pos-sibilities are endless.
Day 1 will be with brush markers and Day 2 will be with pointed pen. For Day 2 we will continue with creating flourishes, figures and animals as found in her book, Designing, Faces, Figures, Florals and More!.
For beginners to advanced students. Some calligraphy experience preferred but not man-datory, creative imagination encouraged, willingness to have fun required.
