Lettering - Drop Cap Art Workshop (4h) - Helsinki

7 aug 2018 16:30 - 21:00

Rõõm, Helsingegatan 17, 00500 Helsingfors

During a Lettering Workshop we draw ordinary and extraordinary letterforms with pencil on paper.

During a DROP CAP ART WORKSHOP you will learn how to draw detailed letters with shade, 3 dimensional effect, pattern and color. We create our letters step by step and create art with our letterforms.

The workshop is open to all no matter the experience, you are very welcome if you are a beginner at lettering. If you have been doing lettering for a while this is a perfect way to get new ideas and inspiration and develop your skills.
After the workshop you will have one or more letterings with one letter or a word drawn and colored on an A4 sized paper.

Bring a pencil, eraser and ruler. Also bring a pigment liner if yoou have one. You will be able to borrow pigment liners on the workshop.
We will use acrylic markers from Posca, a water based paintmarker, in vibrant colors to make our letters pop.

Coffee, tea and a light snack is included. We will have a dinner break, so please bring your own food or buy at the nearest store or coffee house.
