In this class, you'll learn how to create beautiful hand lettered art and stationery using watercolors. Watercolor is an unexpected medium that, when combined with hand lettering, produces a modern style with a surprising twist. This class is for all skill levels, although it will help if you have some experience with hand lettering. You'll learn how to work with liquid, pan, and tube watercolors, along with India ink and similar media. We'll teach you a simple technique with water, a brush, and script lettering that produces gorgeous results; how to fill in pre-sketched block lettering with watercolors; and using masking liquid or white paint pens to letter over a watercolor background wash. At the end of the class, you'll walk away with several hand-lettered watercolor pieces (one piece of art for hanging and a one-of-a-kind greeting card) and a new skill you'll be excited to try at home!
