“Over and Over” with Mike Gold

The Calligraphy Guild of Columbus is pleased to announce a Mike Gold Zoom workshop titled “Over and Over” on Saturday and Sunday, October 24 & 25, 2020, from 11am to 6pm EDT with a mid-class lunch break. If you need to step away for a while, no problem, the class is being recorded to review later. No need to pack your supplies and tote them to class. Class is in your studio! Just swivel in your chair!

This class is designed as a calligraphy marathon, where you will compose the same text (or letter) over and over, but in many different ways. You will be helped along by a series of exercises that will involve different media, tools and techniques. There will be opportunities to treat the text literally and more abstractly. Some of the exercises will involve color, others black & white. You will come away from the day with lots of info on how to compose many variations of a text and hopefully a little work. Put your running shoes on and bring a pen.

Registration is $98 for members/$118 for non-members, plus a $20 handout and mailing fee. For class details and registration visit our Workshop tab on our website: https://calligraphyguildofcolumbus.org/workshops-2/

If you have shied away from Zoom, this will be the perfect one to sign up for. Heather Martinez will conduct a Zoom session, a few days prior to class, to get you comfortable with Zoom, show you around the app, and have you do a system check to be sure you are up and running for class.

Join us from the convenience of your own home for a fun learning experience
