ABOUT THIS EVENT

Event Overview

The unification of written language and visual language can create powerful communication. When done well, illustrative lettering leads to impactful poster design, cards and invitations, advertisements and artwork. Building from each student’s personal style, this workshop will amplify hand-lettering skills and focus on techniques to combine text with illustration.


Students will gain inspiration and ideas from looking at several illustrations by a wide range of artists. Using various prompts, students will practice transforming letterforms into image and experiment with readability, layout, shape, and style. After developing sketches using a wide range of techniques and tools, everyone will have the opportunity to focus on a final illustration that incorporates skills learned throughout the afternoon.

    Great class! The teacher was extremely helpful- I learned a lot of tips on how to "draw" letters and add my own spin to my images. The majority of the class was spent working, which I really liked, while the instructor walked around and offered feedback and support.

    I have always been interested in hand-lettering and had never formally taken a class. This course was great! You were able to go at your own pace and show your personality through your work. We all came out with very different, unique pieces at the end!
