Barbara Close: Magic Lines

Magic Lines
Barbara Close
Saturday, August 7, 2021

This is a course in developing page design elements with gestures, paying attention to lines that interplay with our text. Lines are in every mark we make - thick, thin, straight, curved, organic and meandering. We make lines with our pens each time we sit down to write, draw, or doodle. We will be creating text blocks of elongated Roman Versals, then contrast them with lines of motion for some very interesting pages.
