For this workshop, students are required to be familiar with the pointed pen. Students must know how to create shaded (thick) strokes and hairline (thin) strokes, and transition from thick to thin and vice versa.
Here’s what they will be covering in class:

– the basic strokes of the uppercase letters and drill exercises
– every uppercase letter (A-Z)
