We begin this practical course with an introduction to lettering basics and techniques, and then dive deeper into each foundational element.

Each participant will follow along with demos and exercises that are designed to help everyone gain an understanding of how to create endless possibilities by manipulating one factor at a time.

Each exercise will allow participants who are new to lettering to develop an understanding of the foundational skills to start their lettering journey, and experienced participants will learn how to push their boundaries in order to expand their lettering style.

This workshop will focus on drawing sans-serif and modern serif letters, and wrap up with a presentation on how to use these same principles to approach other styles, including script and blackletter lettering.

Class is held Tuesday and Thursday evenings from May 18–27.

Learning Outcomes
  • Understand the foundations underlying the lettering process
  • Discover different lettering styles by manipulating the factors in these principles
