A prerequisite for all Letter Create Workshops is the Basics Hand Letter Class.
This class translates into all forms of writing techniques including brush lettering, calligraphy, modern flourish script, paint lettering, to name a few. This is done at our Appleton art studio, Milwaukee art studio, Madison art studio and our art retreats. If you plan to take any Step 2 classes (modern calligraphy, calligraphy or brush lettering - we highly recommend you take this class). If you are taking an intensive lettering class - it is already included in the art class. Art retreats always include this class.
This class is offered at all of our locations, retreats and part of any class that is a series. You can also take this only this class if you want to – and still do well with online (youtube) classes – you will see how the basic skills and formation of this class translates to any and all lettering.
This is a basic class to learn the techniques of pressure, angle and direction of your writing instrument, types of papers and pens to consider, as well as the types of lettering. You will learn the basic italic form of writing with a pencil and a paper – this is the foundation for all lettering classes at Letter Create.
Refreshments are complimentary – basic wine, water and simple snacks. If you would like something more sophisticated please let us know at email@example.com or simply bring your own!
