Sign Painting & Lettering Workshop November 9-10 2019
Sign Painting & Lettering Workshop (November 9 & 10)
Learn the art of sign writing from Jeff Williams as he shares his wealth of knowledge acquired over 38 years of working in the trade. This 2-day hand-lettering workshop will challenge both the beginner and those wanting to take their skill to the next level. We will cover tools of the trade, materials, supplies and how to assemble a complete sign painter’s kit. Instruction will be hands-on and participation will include drawing and hand-painting block, casual and script lettering.
Day 2 of the course will cover lettering enhancements, basic shadows, outlines, bevels, blends and other various techniques. We will learn to design a layout, make a pattern and transfer our designs to a sign. You will paint a design of your choice during the open easel time, which features group collaboration, individualized critiques and suggestions that happen in real-time as you work.
Things to Note:
– All materials, except brushes, are provided (while brushes will be available, we encourage you to bring your own)
– We will work with the size 8 lettering quill, but we recommend sizes 2 and 4 for more detailed designing
– Please wear clothing you don’t mind getting paint on
