Noir Magic: Lettering, Flora and Fauna with theresa mARTin
Saturday, January 20, 2018
10:00 – 2:30 pm, ½ hour lunch break
Artistic Artifacts, 4750 Eisenhower Ave Alexandria, VA 22304

If you’ve taken the class in the past and want to bring back your pens, ask about a discount on the materials fee.

All Supplies Provided! Back in the days when monks transcribed books by hand, Illuminated letters were the enlarged first letter in a page or paragraph, often enhanced with decorative elements, flora, fauna and or mythological creatures. In this popular class, learn a variety of mark making techniques to create a modern take on these classic papers. The metallic and color pens against the black paper produce a WOW effect from even the simplest designs. Theresa will guide your through her process and provide a large variety of lettering examples from books to be inspired by (and trace if desired). This is a meditative and fun process requiring no drawing experience  — anyone can doodle a repetitive design! You will leave class with hand made designs perfect to frame, use in book arts or as a greeting card, and more. $48 workshop fee and $20 materials fee, which includes a pack of 10 gel pens plus a white and a gold gel Uniball metallic pen (yours to keep after class!) and the following for use while in class: gold ink, black paper, metallic pencils, woodless pencils, metallic paints, stencils, punches and more. Visit Theresa’s blog here and here to view student work from previous sessions of this class.
