Fun and Funky Hand Lettering
Saturday, July 21st, Noon-4:00PM
Instructor: Alix Christian
Get a little funky with the alphabet! Local artist Alix Christian is delighted to take you on a creative journey into the world of hand lettering, her style. At the beginning of the class Alix demonstrates a few design basics relevant to hand lettering: line variation, horizontal and vertical spacing, basic letter shapes, color, and the like. She then introduces you to some very unusual writing instruments. After that, there are no rules! The fun begins as you play with letters, words, and styles, mixing them all up. It’s time to get creative with writing! Just think what it can add to your journaling and artwork.
Please bring the following optional materials:
- an unlined journal. The paper must be of a good quality that accepts ink and watercolor well. Journals labeled “sketchbook” generally work.
- favorite inks
- favorite watercolors
Cancellations made up to 14 days prior to the first class meeting will be refunded or, at the participant's option, used to pay for another class. Two Hands Paperie will retain a $10 processing fee for EACH class cancelled by a participant. After 14 days, there is no refund or credit. In addition, the fee for a class cancelled within this 14-day timeframe by a participant cannot be transferred to pay for another class. These policies are to ensure that teachers are compensated for their investment in materials and in time spent preparing for the class. We reserve the right to cancel a class if fewer than 3 students enroll 48 hours prior to the scheduled class time. If for any reason Two Hands Paperie cancels a class, students will be called at the phone number on file and refunded the FULL class fee.
Alix Christian likes to play with fire. She's an encaustic artist who mixes beeswax and tree resin with pigmented colors, then heats the layers with a blow torch. Alix earned her BFA in Portland, Oregon, and her MFA in West Texas. Her work has been exhibited as far south as Texas and New Mexico, north from Minnesota to Michigan, and across the Atlantic in Assisi, Italy. Alix taught Fine Art and Computer Graphics at Amarillo College for seven years, and has resided in Colorado since 2010. Though typography is a love of hers, encaustic was "the first medium to catch me and now it won't let go". See Alix's work at alixchristian.com or on Facebook.
