Wednesdays, March 18 & March 25, 2020 2 Day Calligraphy/Hand Lettering Class Reno, NV EPIC Program of TMCC Truckee Meadows Community College / Meadowood Campus
In class we work together on the development of your own personal and distinctive style of creating beautiful, free-flowing letters. You will be gaining the basic knowledge of what constitutes and creates the letters and words we so love.
We will be creating our own beautiful lettering style ranging from the traditional to the whimsical. You will see how it feels to practice writing with a calligraphy pen, 2 pencils at a time, and a paintbrush. One or all mediums of writing beautifully may resonate with you. I will share with you how satisfying it is to learn this graceful artistry and you will have hands on examples of how to create your own wonderful works in lettering. .
There are many more exciting ways to use your newfound talent of lettering for scrapbooking, wedding and party invitations, specialty items and more. I focus on YOU, and your visions of what you wish to create with letters and words.
I have created a separate website specific to the area of Calligraphy and hand-lettering. Please visit the site: Calligraphy-TheLetteraryArts.com "I love and encourage the learning of all lettering styles from the traditional to the whimsical!"
I have been teaching Calligraphy for over 25 years. I was commissioned to hand letter the names of the Representatives of the Nevada State Legislature under the photographs of the 73rd session of Congress. I am also honored to be a recognized Arts Educator on the Nevada State Roster of Artists + Communities.

Learn what a "Smudge" can do! Oil Pastel Smudge
I also enjoy working with "Oil Pastels" and I have come up with a fabulous technique working in this versatile medium. I call the technique Oil Pastel Smudge The technique involves working with a template you create yourself. It encompasses the use of math and cognitive thinking skills and is great fun once you learn a few simple rules.
The "Smudge" process is able to create the distinct hard lines you see in the samples above. More images can be found on the website OilPastelSmudge.com In class you will learn to create everything from beautiful landscapes, floral art, abstract works and more in a matter of minutes, once you understand the technique. Whether you are a beginner to creating art or have some experience working in oil pastels. It is great fun to "Smudge" and oh the beautiful art you will create! Learn to view the world and art differently. Several students have finished a piece and framed their art for the first time after taking the class. The technique is great for creating cards, wrapping paper, and other gift giving ideas. Which I enjoy sharing in class.
Drawing lined patterns in black and white is all the rage these days. The process is similar to doodling but with more intention. In class you will learn to beautifully doodle circles, patterns & lines created in a preprinted lined image. Drawing is found to be both relaxing and enjoyable, helping to take the stress and worries out of your day. Schedule a class today and see how I approach patterning in a exciting, new and different way. I will be sharing with you the process I take to illustrate my wonderful Coloring pages.
This course is offered in either a 1 day workshop and also a 3 week, 1 day per week course. Learn what it will take to get your creativity from producing beautiful artwork (paintings, jewelry, crafts, etc...) to a business mindset, where you can make money doing what you love.
