I was fortunate enough to meet some amazing artists and calligraphers along my journey, and all of them were complete open books, not afraid to share their tips and tricks and how they go about their process. So I decided to do the same. I sort of fell in to it actually, needing to cover for someone doing a workshop,
and have been trying to schedule a few every year ever since.
In these courses, you will learn beginner techniques. What the materials are, how to use your pen, practice strokes, a bit of history, and the alphabet. This is a stepping stone for any creative who thinks they may want to dabble in calligraphy. If you say to yourself, "my handwriting is terrible," then that is great! Most artists have terrible handwriting! This is much more like drawing, and with these courses I have seen plenty of people who "don't have a creative bone in their body" leave the class fully capable of writing their name.
Costs include all materials and supplies, all you need to do is show up! Workshops are held at my studio right here in Hartford, Connecticut. Please feel free to contact me with any questions/requests for dates for workshops.
One of my favorite parts of my job is being able to paint almost daily, and create custom work for my clients to appreciate for years to come. I have a background in painting and it is what I studied in school. In this beginner class, we will go over the different types of brushes and watercolor paints I use, different techniques to achieve certain looks within your painting, and a little bit of background on color theory. The class includes paper, brushes, a watercolor tray with paint, and is perfect for anyone just dipping their toes into this medium!
