Captivating Color in Calligraphy: Choosing Mixing, and Using Color in Calligraphy
With Carol Measures Scott

Gorgeous greens, blissful blues, passionate purples – let’s learn how to use color to make a beautiful calligraphy project! We will explore how to choose colors that work together, make simple watercolor backgrounds, and write a quote project using gouache on the watercolor background. This class is suited to those who have used dip pens before.

Class sessions are live online with recordings available shortly afterward.

Sundays, March 27 - May 1, 2022, 1 - 3 p.m. Central Time (Dallas)
