Create a dimensional painting of your favorite word
I have been a lettering artist for awhile now, loving every minute of it! I have worked with a range of clients, from Nickelodeon to McDonalds to the Ace Hotel. I'm excited to share some of my knowledge, techniques, and tips with you... and to get you creating your own dimensional type!
In this class, I will explore lettering through painting by hand. Paint provides an amazing texture quality, and endless possibilities for happy mistakes. You'll learn a lot about adding dimension to your letters even if you're in the sketching phase! I will encourage trial and error and teach you how to embrace those happy mistakes that will create a joyful piece of lettering art!
What You'll Learn
What You'll Do
You will create your own dimensional type piece as the project for this class. Whether you would like to create a type drawing, or a painted piece- my painting process will help you! You will use your hands and get dirty to create a colorful, layered, joyful lettered painting or drawing by following along as I paint.
The physical process of painting that you will experience with type in your project will inform your lettering process moving forward... and give you a unique sense of depth and space. I encourage you to be as brave as possible with your design, color, and paint choices- I certainly will be. Let's Giddy Up!
