Presenter: Kristi Darwick

We'll focus on traditional Romans, using enjoyable exercises to cement those letterforms. This is aimed at giving us a head-start for our June Drawn and Built-up Capitals workshop with Yukimi Annand.  Time allowing, we'll touch on  more casual forms. Anyone looking for an introduction, or to brush-up on their Romans forms, is welcome.  You need not be a member

Kristi taught a similar in-person class for San Diego--this session will spend more time on the traditional forms (and spacing) and simply touch on casual variations. 

No charge.

Materials List:

Grid paper: 8 square per inch is ideal (important)

Pencil and eraser

Pigma Micron marker 08 (Try to have a permanent fine-line marker of this size on hand!)

One or more pieces of paper (9x12 is good) that handles a small amount of water, such as Strathmore Drawing series 400, Arches Text Wove, 90-lb hot press, Canson mixed media pad, etc.. 

Watercolor pencils, jar of water, decent brush (size 2 is good, but a larger brush will work, too, as long as it has a good point

(If you don't have watercolor pencils, you can substitute regular colored pencils or watercolor)
