Freehand Watercolor Patterns, Part I

Learn the basics of choosing a complementary color palette, using negative and positive space, and grouping elements in various ways for visual interest. We'll learn and practice 4 different types of freehand watercolor patterns while exploring the loveliness of imperfect symmetry.

 

Students will receive a recommended supplies list to purchase ahead of class (if you already have supplies, great!), or you can purchase an optional workshop add-on to have a starter kit mailed to you ahead of class.

 

For creatives of all levels and styles, age 13+.

 

Hand Lettering with Art Pens, Part I

Dates/Times TBD

Live via Zoom

 

Hand-lettering has a wonderfully natural, delightfully personal touch that distinguishes it from fonts, typography, and printing press art forms.

 

In this workshop, we'll explore multiple styles of block lettering and cursive scripts while working with spacing, slant, varying pen weights, and line heights to convey different moods and messaging styles.

 

We'll cover helpful tips and tricks for planning out spacing, and students will have time to play with various lettering styles as well as work on hand lettering a quote or phrase.

Students will receive a recommended supplies list to purchase ahead of class (if you already have supplies, great!), or you can purchase an optional workshop add-on to have a starter kit mailed to you ahead of class.

Creative Business Chats

Dates/Times TBD

Live on Zoom

 

I'm working on designing several virtual Creative Business Chats on various topics including:

  • Story-Led Branding | Talking about your work and what you do through stories, inviting your audience into your corner, sharing your process, and building long-lasting relationships with customers
     

  • Balancing Act | Juggling an art business while working full-time, brainstorming ways to best utilize the time and resources you have, planning ahead for both slow and busy seasons, and avoiding burnout.
     

  • Shifting Seasons | Listening to your intuition and making note of what is or is not working, shifting direction in your business to follow your creative curiosities, and communicating changes to your audience with excitement and in a way that invites them along for the ride
     

Let me know which interest you most: Vote on topics!
