Flourishing means to flower, and must come from within. We assume we can’t because we are beginners, because we hesitate, because our hands are shaky, our lines imperfect, and man, that dern pointed pen is so persnickety. We are incredibly hard on ourselves. This kind of negative thinking chokes our ability to thrive, so my approach to flourishing begins with marveling first at the miracle you are, becoming a friend to fear, and then training the eye on what it needs to see to create flourishes - the OVAL. I’ll show you just how easy it is to spot opportunities for ovals to be made. We take our cues from the shapes and strokes already there in your letter forms. We’ll train the eye to work from micro to macro, dissecting space into simple shapes of counterbalance and we’ll work slowly enough to give the eye time to spot opportunities to flourish as you are moving.
Time includes an hour for lunch, as well as mid-morning and mid-afternoon breaks.
Students must be set up to take a Zoom class with video and audio (signed on one device); access to a printer is required to print some of the handouts.
