Learn Modern Calligraphy: Watercolor Brush Calligraphy

Seattle, WA , United States

About Your Host

Hi, I'm Sarah! I am a Lettering Artist in Seattle who is passionate about cultivating community. I teach calligraphy and hand lettering and have had hundreds of students come through my curriculum in recent years. In my classes, you can expect to learn tried and tested techniques and practical application in a supportive, engaging and interactive environment. My teaching style is warm and demonstrative and I frequently receives rave reviews from my students. In addition to regular calligraphy and lettering classes, you can plug into our monthly Seattle Calligraphy Meetup. I took my first calligraphy class in the 6th grade and fell in love with the art form. In college I studied Visual Design with a Certified Image Master where I honed my design instincts and calligraphy gives me an opportunity to blend my design and education background. A few years ago I rediscovered modern calligraphy and have studied with renown calligraphers and letterers.

What we'll do

Watercolor lettering is a practice that merges two remarkable art forms into one blended finished product. At our Watercolor Lettering workshop, we begin by familiarizing ourselves with how to mix watercolor paints with water to achieve the ombre effect, and blending colors together to achieve your favorite colors. After this, you'll be introduced to the pressure / release technique found in modern calligraphy, then spend the rest of the class learning a playful brush lettering alphabet using paint brush and watercolors. We’ll leave time for you to work on a lettering project with your newfound watercolor lettering skills! This is a favorite class for many since it includes the organic texture of the paintbrush and incorporates a variety of vibrant colors in concert with the lovely lilt of lettering. We provide the workbook that we will reference throughout the class, though because this class is being taught at Daniel Smith Art Supplies, the watercolor supplies are not included -- that said, you won't have far to go to get your supplies! We recommend the following for class: - Watercolor or mixed media paper - Round brush 4 from the Snap! Princeton line - Plastic paint palette for mixing colors - Daniel Smith watercolor tubes in primary colors (you can purchase the smaller tubes) - Higgins Eternal black watercolor ink
