Description: The words we think, speak, and give are so important, stemming from the importance of God’s Word and His promises to us.  Deuteronomy chapter six tells us to surround ourselves with the truth of God’s Word, incorporating it into every aspect of our daily lives, “so that you may enjoy long life,” and “so that it may go well with you.”  Creative lettering will help us do just that in a beautiful and artistic way!  With an emphasis on Scripture, along with words from Christian authors and other positive sayings, students will learn and practice lettering skills which will be applied to in-class projects such as frameable quotes, gifts, notes, decor, and more.  To begin the year, students will learn a traditional calligraphy alphabet in order to gain a good understanding of the anatomy of letterforms before we break the rules and jump into the modern creative lettering movement so popular today.  Added to the mix will be creative artwork and drawings/doodles with watercolor, colored pencil, and pen & ink.  Tossed in for good measure will be a look back in history at illuminated manuscripts and other examples of early lettering and related art forms.  Students will be introduced to a variety of alphabets and techniques throughout the year and will use a variety of pens and other media.  Students willing to do additional practice at home will get the most out of this class (even 10 minutes a day will do wonders!), and some projects may need to be started in class and finished at home due to the patient nature of careful lettering.  All supplies are provided in class.
