new date added :: beginner brush lettering

brushlettering-Apr18Our first workshop sold out, so we added a new date. John Lennig from Big Top Sign Arts will be teaching a second workshop on Saturday, April 18th from 9:30am to 12:30pm. Details below…

Course description:
Did you attend the screening of the Sign Painter movie at the Rio Theatre? Sign Painter, John Lennig from Big Top Sign Arts, will be hosting a workshop discussing brush lettering in general and specifically the BullNose letter style, one of the most basic of hand painted styles. Consisting of 6 basic strokes, John will teach you how to create both upper and lower case letters as well as proper brush handling, brushcare, and the types of paints used. The first half of the hands-on workshop will cover the above, along with getting your brushes into the paint and practicing the 6 basic strokes. While the second half will move into letters and finish up with the creation of a few pieces to take home. “The Swoop” will also be discussed, demonstrated, and if time allows, be put to use in the finished pieces.

You’ll take home:
A 1-2 word piece using both upper and lower case in the BullNose lettering style
A #6 Langnickel Nocturna brush
A small container of paint
