    Introduction to Calligraphy and the Italic Alphabet

    October 29 and November 5

    Tuesdays -- 10:30 - 4:30 each day...with an hour break for lunchtime.

    3 - 6 students - $75 each includes kit

    1 or 2 students - $125 each, includes kit and personal attention all day

    Introduction to Calligraphy and the Italic Alphabet

    This workshop gives an introduction and overview to the classic lettering arts;

    Where it has been and how it is used today.  The Italic alphabet is a base for learning good letter forms, especially for good cursive writing.  Students will learn to use a broad edge pen to form the letters while learning the history of these Italian letters and why they are still popular today.  Students may also use a mono-line pen and practice connecting these letters to form a nice cursive writing system.  Modern calligraphy styles are something else entirely and not considered classic lettering. Although that is fun and we will talk about modern styles, this class is structured to provide good classic letter forms.

    Students will be asked to write a quote, suitable for framing.  Bring a quote of choice.

    Materials and paper will be supplied/available - $75 includes the time in the full day session and a kit with beginning supplies – class limit is 6 students.  Private lessons are available by appointment and may include 1 or 2 students only – for $125 per person.  A private lesson allows me to sit with you and give you direct attention.

    Bring a box lunch and snacks will be provided.  There are plenty of places within 3 miles to pick up a sandwich as well.

    You do not need to bring anything....except some samples of some of your work if you have any.

    Bring a friend if you wish.  Register by emailing me.  Payment is not required to hold a spot...

    payment is by check (to Linda C. Gray) or cash when you arrive.

    WHITE-LINE WOODBLOCK PRINTS
    taught by Meg Kennedy
    https://public.mainlineart.org/public/ClassDisplay.faces
    Wednesdays 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM
    Jul 18 - Aug 1, 2018
    Session: Summer
    Medium: Print, Paper and Book Arts | Level: All Levels
    Member: $69.00 | Non-Member: $78.00
    Note: Held at Main Line Art Center
    This type of woodblock printing originated during the early 20th century in Provincetown, MA, from a community of artists seeking to emulate Japanese prints using only one woodblock. The process involves carving an image into white pine and painting one small section at a time with watercolor, which results in a multi-colored woodblock print without multiple registrations for color. The most well-known practitioner of this distinctly American art form (also called “the Provincetown Print”) was Blanche Lazzell.  Students will learn to transfer their image onto wood, carve and proof the image, and paint as many unique prints as time allows.  Minimum enrollment needed to run each program, so please register early!


    Core Takeaways:

    1. Introduction to the Provincetown Print. 

    2. Learn to abstract their image into a form that will adapt to this woodblock technique and transfer it onto wood. 

    3. Learn to carve the woodblock, using X-acto knives. 

    4. Proof and refine carved image before painting. 

    5. Learn to print with watercolors and gouache

    Student Supply List:

    A regular pencil (e.g. HB) and a soft pencil (4B)  tracing paper, 9 x 12", X-acto knives with straight pointed (#11) and rounded (scalpel) blades,silver spoon (soup or serving size), one sheet of thick printmaking paper (e.g. American Masters, Rives BFK, Magnani Pescia, Kochi), watercolors and/or gouache (tube preferred but pan ok),  a few smallish pointed paintbrushes, variety of sizes

    $15 materials fee payable to the teaching artist on the first day of class
