COURSE DESCRIPTION In this class, our focus will be letter flourishes. We will first take a close look at the flourish forms used as part of a lower case letter, how and when they are used to enhance your text. Variations of ascender, descender, beginning and exit strokes will be included. Once we have this foundation, we will learn how and when to incorporate them into text. Using multiple line text samples, we will go from pencil draft to the final piece. Rounding out the class will be a look at one word designs, for example, how to enhance names on an invitation to create a focal point. Our projects will also consider phrasing, color choice, size of lettering type and size of paper, ruling the page, designing and executing the lettering.
SKILL LEVEL -knowledge of classic copperplate letterforms.
