PRESENTER: Mina Taylor
Sponsored by the Inland Empire/Pomona Valley chapter of SfC
Saturday June 24 and Sunday, June 25 3-4:30PM PDT
Outreach Program: No charge. Membership in SfC not required.
ABOUT THE CLASS: If watercolor washes are a bit of a mystery to you, if you're curious about how to use salt in your art and if you are up for using bleed proof white in your brush, come and join us. We will explore these as well as how to increase the level of contrast in your art AFTER you finish.
ABOUT MINA: Mina Taylor has practiced calligraphy for over 45 years. For 20 years she ran an art show featuring 25 artists from southern California. In 1979, she founded and launched her calligraphic business: Mina's Manuscripts and More. Taking on students and limited commissions, her current work can be seen at minas.manuscripts on Instagram. She draws inspiration and text from the Bible, which she has been an anchor in her own life. "I believe that calligraphic words of truth can inspire people in upheaval, in grief, in hopelessness, in joy, in all of life really--to think beyond their situation to eternal things."
