A Modern Twist on Monoline Lettering NEW! In-Store Class
Friday, May 12, 11am-4pm 
Instructor: Renee Jorgensen
Limit: 6 students

Class Details:

Monoline lettering is a simple alphabet where all the lines have equal weight. That is, each letter has the same thickness from start to finish with no variation in width and no contrast from thick to thin. One of the more modern styles of lettering, monoline is an unpretentious, friendly script that’s easy to learn and very adaptable.

We like this modern twist done by Renee Jorgensen, a local artist who teaches drawing and illustration at the Denver Botanic Gardens in their School of Botanical Art and Illustration. Renee’s example, which looks like stained glass, is created on black paper with color pencils. It looks lovely when framed. 

Join her for a little coloring fun as you overlap letters and practice making a jewel-toned alphabet with monoline pens. It’s simple, it’s fun, it’s colorful – what’s not to like! Renee also shows you other fun ways to use the technique.

Masks are optional and encouraged for all students and instructors. Students will be provided their own set of tools, which are sanitized between every class session. Due to the size of our class space we are unable to practice social distancing in the classroom. The requirements for store staff and customers will follow Boulder County mask and safety mandates. Please contact ahead of time if you have specific questions regarding class covid safety.

    Class Refund/Cancellation Policy

    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.

    Instructor Bio

    Renee Jorgensen is an artist and illustrator with degrees and certifications in commercial art, graphic design, and botanical illustration. She’s also certified as an American Cursive Handwriting instructor. In addition, Renee has studied various forms of calligraphy. She has a particular reverence for the art of Medieval Illumination, which inspired her to develop her own modern style of the traditional illuminated alphabet. It’s not surprising that she combines her love of nature and the written word in the classes she teaches throughout the wider Denver area! As an instructor on the staff of the Denver School of Botanical Art and Illustration in Denver, Colorado, she offers classes in illustration, modern illumination, and calligraphy. In 2017, she was one of eight instructors, each submitting individual entries in the group category for the annual botanical art show held in London by the Royal Horticultural Society. They received a Group Gold Medal Award. Renee’s art is enjoyed in private collections and a variety of publications for gardening communities. Learn more about Renee on her website:
