If you’re interested in learning calligraphy, thinking of starting your own business, or just like to try something new – this class is for you. This class is truly meant for beginners – if you’ve never picked up a calligraphy pen before, you’ll want to take this class!

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:
– a review of the fundamental concepts of Copperplate script (proportions, slant, shades, ovals, etc.)
– the basic strokes of the uppercase letters and drill exercises
In this 3-hour class, you will learn how to gain confidence with the brush, how to create a brush-lettering style and the steps to take a piece from concept to finalized piece. Nicole demonstrates how to transition to combining the letters into words, how to create/define your own style and how to blend colors to create an ombre look.
With the small class environment and Nicole’s teaching style, each student will receive one-on-one attention and individual help.
All supplies in a custom wooden box: 36 color watercolor palette, pad of paper that Nicole has found is best for scanning/creating work, 2 brushes, jar of white and gold ink and the booklet of information with Nicole’s lettering style and lesson plan.
