A Sharp Pencil and a Keen Eye
After two years of trying, we have finally secured Amity Parks, noted calligrapher from Missoula, Montana. Amity travels extensively, teaching throughout the US and abroad.
We will be learning from her class titled A Sharp Pencil and a Keen Eye. In this class, the humble pencil and its relatives become powerful tools in creating many effects from subtle to stunning.
We will use pencils, erasers, graphite sticks/blocks, powdered graphite and their water-soluble cousins to explore the possibilities of this medium for creating refined works of art to quickly make drawings in our sketchbooks.
Fabulous and Affordable One-Day Workshops for Scribes!
We have worked hard to secure at least 5 one-day classes this season. These classes are geared to beginner’s – there can be NO FEAR. Once you have contacted Linda Ross to register and we receive your check (this is your commitment), you will receive the minimal supply list for the workshop. Again, we will set something up with John Neal Bookseller and/or Paper & Ink Arts so that you can go to their website, look at the supply list for each class, and pick and choose the items you don’t already have and will still need. This eliminates any guesswork and legwork trying to find the right supplies. As always, we are here if you have any questions about substitutions.
Don’t miss your chance to take our Special ONE-DAY Workshops with a professional for the low price of $40. Classes are 10am to 4:30pm at the JCC in Maitland. Our classes are on Sundays because that is the date we have access to a classroom. These classes are for beginners – have no fear! - and also for those that want to refresh or perfect their calligraphy styles. This is the availability:
