WINTER 2021
LETTERING ARTS GUILD WORKSHOPS

  • All registrations will be accepted on a first-come basis beginning December 2020.  You may mail or e-mail your registrations. Your place will not be guaranteed until payment is received.

  • In the event that we reach our class maximum on the first day of registration, all names will be put into a hat and drawn randomly.

  • We have estimated the costs on the basis of a minimum number or students per class. We reserve the right to cancel any class that has insufficient numbers.

  • Your cheque will be cashed on the registration deadline date.

  • Except in the case of a class cancellation, your fee cannot be refunded after the registration deadline unless there is a waiting list. Materials are often purchased and cut according to number of participants.
    If there is no waiting list and you are unable to attend, consider sending another member in your place or make arrangements to pick up your package of materials and/or class notes.

  • Please ensure that you arrive on time to the classes so that interruptions are minimized.  When class is over, please clean your own station before you leave!  We only have our space & instructor for the allotted class time, so please be ready to leave when class is finished.

Registrations are accepted on a first come, first serve basis.

Monoline Magic with Julie Wildman

When: Saturday, January 16, 2021

            9:00am - 12:00 pm via Zoom

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

Instructor: Julie Wildman

Registration Deadline:  First come, first serve

Cost: *FREE* to Members 
       
        

To kick off 2021, the Lettering Arts Guild is offering a FREE class for current members … we know it’s not easy to stay engaged during these times while we can’t meet in person so this is our thank you for your acceptance of the virtual formats of meetings and classes. We’re super excited to be able to “bring” Julie Wildman as our guest instructor for the occasion! Julie will host a 3‐hour class via Zoom with Karen Ness moderating. Be sure to free up that morning on your calendars but if you can’t join in live, you will receive a recording to work through at your leisure.

This class explores the possibilities of the monoline letterform through a series of exercises designed to help students see letters as shapes with positive and negative space. We will play with monoline gestural writing and distorted (or funky!) upper and lowercase letters. Along the way, we’ll pay attention to the beauty of the negative space between the forms and learn some simple ways to emphasize that space through color and value.

Please see the brochure for the supplies listing.

Flourish the morning away while we create Embedded Letters inspired by the Zentangle® Method. This playful technique incorporates the use of “aura” and “rounding” to embellish hand‐drawn letters. These beautiful letters can be used in a variety of ways: journals, envelopes, bookmarks, gift tags and even as framed art!

 

No previous experience with the Zentangle® Method or lettering required.

Each participant will receive 3 regular tiles + 1 small tile (bijou). Local participants will be asked to pick up at a central location and tiles will be mailed to participants outside of Red Deer.
