Description: Joining God and Self, Word and Image with expressive calligraphy gives you the ability to deepen your personal spiritual growth as well as touch the lives of others….bringing encouragement and hope. Learn to practice your passion for calligraphy to create unique, life giving designs. We will meditate on and think through your selection of thought provoking words, choosing the phrases that speak to you and learn to arrange them in a variety of impactful layouts. Interpret the spirit of the text with imagery, decoration, flourishes and multiple lettering styles changing the weight, height and mood of the letters, first in pencil layouts and as time permits, finalize with watercolor, colored pencil, simple collage or with other tools and materials that you have with you. Create a simple portfolio in which to carry your designs home or gift them to another. Whatever your faith or spiritual bent, you are welcome in this class as we “feed the soul by making meaningful words beautiful.”
