Make Your Mark

May 11, 12, 13  / 11 am–1pm CDT

This class will explore the beauty of the abstract form, using all sorts of tools and fluids to ‘make our mark’ on the page. The artist Georgia O’Keeffe said: ‘Go fill your space in a beautiful way.’ It is my hope that this class will help you do that!

Variations on Akim

‘Akim Cursive’ is a hand created by calligrapher Hans-Joachim Burgert and is said to replicate the rhythm of the

human heart. 

We will briefly explore Burgert's version, then move into more expressive variations using several different tools. We’ll finish off with a small composition.

Long Text & Compositions in Akim

This class further explores the Akim hand. We will write long texts and compositions, focusing on rhythmic patterns. We will also try some abstract compositions.

 

PREREQUISITE: You must have already completed the ‘Variations on Akim’ class

Fun & Funky Letters

This is a great class for those who want to learn how to create playful letters, both in color and black and white. Through a series of exercises we will explore new ways to make letters with both traditional and non-traditional tools. We will work with black on white, white on black, walnut ink, watercolors, metallics, and gel pens on different papers.

Exploring the Handwritmic Ruling Pen

Come find out more about this fabulous, versatile writing tool designed by artist/calligrapher, Brody Neuenschwander.

 

You will learn how the pen responds to different hand and arm movements; different fluids; and different papers.

The Inside Curve

This playful hand was created several years ago and is composed of letters that are drawn, not lettered with a specific tool. These built-up letters lend themselves to a variety of applications.

 

Together we will learn the basic forms, then branch out into variations.

Wild Writing with Resist

This class will explore ways of making letters and abstract marks using all sorts of traditional and non-traditional writing tools. Students will be led through exercises that will focus on composition and the importance of negative space. They will then learn several resist techniques using liquid gesso, acrylics, Frisket, and masking fluid.
