Brush and Pen Dance Together

Learn new ideas combining the Brush Marker with the Pointed Pen to make beautiful formal script with colorful lourishes and designs. Also learn how to work on the “shady” side, which gives lettering and design more depth and pizzas. The key to creating beautiful calligraphy is practice, practice, practice; but the secret ingredient is having fun while you practice. The beauty of the brush is that you can carry the brush markers with you to practice on the go where you can write thank-you notes on location, and letter people’s names as immediate gifts and showing “random acts of kindness through calligraphy”. We will primarily focus on the brush markers, but we will also dance with the pointed pen showing endless possibilities when combined. Be prepared to have fun while working inside and outside the box! Skill Level: All 


Pointed Brush Markers – One or more small Pentel (SES15-NA) your choice of color brush marker, one or more small brush PITT (Faber-Castell) artist pens any color. One shading brush marker- light warm grey small brush PITT I 207** artist pen.Your favorite pointed pen and nib and black ink. Pencil – any soft leaded pencil. Kneaded Eraser –any eraser (I prefer the grey kneaded eraser). Layout paper – semi-transparent layout paper, suggested Borden and Riley Boris Layout Paper, or any paper that works well with pen and ink. Some white and colored cardstock or blank note cards- any size. Optional: Glittery gel pens – I love the ZIG Wink of Stella markers. Embellishments – Stickles, Glitter Glue, or other small embellishments.
