Date: Saturday, June 2Time: 9:00am-4:00pm Technique: Collage & Assemblage Instructor: Lisa Engelbrecht Price: $149.00 Materials Fee: $10.00
does it mean to write in Letterista style? Well, it's a sweet mash up
of traditional calligraphy gone wild—modern and funky inventions and
innovations on old styles of lettering! I've coined the term
"Letterista" to describe my take on rebellious calligraphy. What will
happen when we open up to modifications of several styles of lettering ?
Let's organically explore all these options together. Rebellious and
chaotic, spilling our brilliant and innermost thoughts on the page,
always a lot of fun! Explorers, letterers, and artists wanted!
