Fundamentals of Flat Brush Lettering: Block Capitals & Condensed Casuals
Saturday & Sunday, April 18 & 19, 10:00 AM – 5:00 PM
Sign painters use styles that can be lettered efficiently with a flat brush. The shape of the brush itself leads to particular aesthetic qualities in the lettering. Strokes of the brush, when formed effectively, give the lettering a personality of its own.
Two staples of the vernacular American genre will be covered: single stroke block and single stroke casual.
No prior lettering experience is required, but students should have an interest in making orthodox letterforms. In addition, drawing aptitude is a bonus.
