Full day workshops break for lunch from 12:00 pm to 1:30 pm.
Brush Roman Majuscules (Day 1)
John Downer & Paul Herrera
Cost: $200 (Two Day Workshop)
Maximum Participants: 24
Location: Pacific Northwest College of Art
This is a two day workshop. Participants must be prepared to attend both days.
This course is being taught by two Iowans who have had vast experience in the lettering profession, especially with a brush. John Downer and Paul Herrera will provide instruction on the proportions of Imperial Roman Majuscules, and show how the letters are formed with a flat, one-stroke, lettering brush. Each participant will receive valuable pointers on paint control, proper technique, stroke sequences, and various essential aspects of brush manipulation. Regular demonstrations will also be given.
Nontoxic, water-soluble tempera paint will be used. Materials will be included in the cost of the workshop.
Hope to see you there!
