Whimsical Spring Watercolour Book

When: Tuesday, September 8, 15, 22 & 29, 2020

            

Instructor: Sally Towers-Sybblis

Registration Deadline:  First come, first serve

Where:  Wherever you feel comfortable. This class is                     offered via video series. 

Cost: $35 (Members) 
         $50 (Non-Members)
        

This class was previously offered in March, but was delayed due to COVID-19. Our new format is described below. 

Build a book from scratch using a simple Japanese Stab binding. Fill your book pages with painted garden themed imagery, quotes, and collage. Learn a simple funky spiral alphabet to embellish your pages. Discover how different types of watercolour paper yield different results.

 

This class is prerecorded in a 4 part video series—Sally will provide us with a link each Tuesday and you will be able to watch it and work along at your convenience for one month after the last class.

 

 

Part One: In class one we will learn how to do a simple Japanese stab binding for our book. After the stab binding is complete, we will paint the front and back cover with some whimsical flowers. Next we will paint the first two inside pages with a combination of lettering and watercolor.

Part Two: In class two we will make a seed packet out of arches text wove paper. The seed packet will be mounted onto page 3 of our book onto which we will paint another background which will compliment our seed packet.

Part Three: Learn how to paint whimsical poppies in watercolor. We will also learn how to paint a sunflower on our old book page.

Part Four: Use watercolor paint and crayons to create a simple landscape. Recreate this landscape into a garden scene which we will glue into a two page spread in our book and add in some lettering.

 No previous experience is required for this class.   


 Optional $10.00 supply fee payable to Sally.

Instructor:  Jo-Anne Rogers

Registration Deadline: First come, first serve

Is your Italic a little rusty? Is it time to freshen it up...and take it up a notch? Dust off your Italic lettering in this three week class.

 

We’ll review the basic letterforms, play with capitals and some flourishing and then and introduce pointed pen Italic to make them even more elegant. This will mainly be a technique class although homework will be assigned to use your lettering in a small project.

 

Instruction will be provided through a virtual learning environment, using a Facebook Live private group. (You will require a computer, tablet or phone as well as a Facebook account to be
able to view while you are lettering.)

 

Classes will be recorded so you can review throughout the duration of the course and for an additional 30 days after class ends.

Prerequisites:

- Beginner Italic
 -Facebook account (See registration for more information)
