Drawing & Painting Summer Session 5
July 18 – August 2, 2021
This workshop will explore the lettering, materials, and design that help define the art of sign painting. Students will learn to draw and paint many different letter styles, explore the use of different lettering brushes, choose the best brushes, tools, and materials for each project, and develop a stronger understanding of composition and color for all types of signs. We’ll mix traditional sign painting education with flexibility and fun through presentations, demonstrations, lots of practice, and individual projects. We’ll cover topics such as gold leaf signs, wall signs, and window signs depending on student interest. Whether you are an absolute beginner or an experienced sign painter, this workshop will be an exciting way to engage in the history and practice of this once-disappearing art form. All levels.
