APRIL 18th MEETING: 7pm at VineArts Studio
Jacqueline Sullivan's workshop in October introduced us to the use of a single edged razor blade as a lettering
tool. Dave Kuwahara will expand on this idea, and we will develop our skills by using this tool to create wider
strokes, working with the side of the blade for distinctive shorter strokes, and exploring the letterforms that can
be adapted to this tool. We will also work with automatic pens in non-traditional ways, continuing with the
idea of skinny lines and adding perpendicular strokes to form unique, bold letters.
Bring along any automatic, flat or horizon pens. Layout Bond or all-purpose copier paper, walnut ink, gouache,
or horizon pens. Layout Bond or all-purpose copier paper, walnut ink, gouache, or any ink you have on hand
will be fine. Dave will provide ink wells wide enough to dip the razor blades. Don't go out and buy any items.
If you're not sure what any of this means, just show up and we'll provide what you need.
