Description


Learn Calligraphy with Brush Markers In this class you will learn a traditional calligraphic letterform called Italic and will use these letterforms to create fun words to be used in your journal, scrapbooks, envelopes and anywhere else your imagination and creativity takes you.

It is fun for all ages 12 to112 and is a very fun way to doodle. Doodling is good! And if you are a lefty---no problem! Lefties can write with these wonderful brush markers and do just as well as righties.

This class is also a great starting point to transition into learning calligraphy with the traditional tools of dip pens and ink. Have fun, learn the letterforms then make them your own and create wonderful words with bright colors---but be careful… it is highly addictive!! But---that’s a good thing!

Lesson 1:-Get to Know Your Pens
Lesson 2: Lower Case letterforms
Lesson 3: Capitals
Lesson 4: Letter Variations and other fun stuff
Lesson 5: Embellished Words and more fun stuff

SUPPLIES
  • Zig *Brushables Markers (my favorite!), Zig *Scroll and Brush Markers. Zig also has *Writers in coordinating colors (optional) that can be used for outlining and embellishing.
  • Marvy Le Plume ll or Tombo Markers Suggested colors for markers: green (Spring Green orKiwi) , blue, yellow, red or pink, and a light grey for shadowing (Zig- Brushable --Platinum) There are LOTSof colors available!
  • Faber Castele Black Pitt pens in small or fine—or another small liner black pen you might have. Pigma is also good.
  • Laser paper (optional) for printing your lines. This type of copy paper is a bit more slick and doesn’t use as much ink from the pens while practicing---but regular copy paper will also do.
  • Darker paper –any colors will do
  • Gel pens—any type (I use Jelly roll, glitter pens with the star on it. Again—this is optional and use what you have.
  • Any and all types of paper will work—I like to use watercolor paper and your journal paper is fine also.
  • White pens for dotting and embellishment. I like Uni-ball Signo UM-153White—or white gel pens, or small paint pens.

Gel pens, Faber Castele Pitt Pens as well as Pigma Black Pens can be found
at your local Michaels, Hobby Lobby and art supply store.
You can also get some of these supplies on eBay and you might just have
these in your art stash!
I do suggest using a new brush marker just so you can get a good crisp
stroke for your letterforms,
MAKE SURE YOU STORE THESE PENS IN A HORIZONTAL
POSITION SO AS NOT COMPROMISE ONE END OF YOUR PEN
