Basic Monoline Italic

  • August 27, 2022
  • 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM (PDT)
  • Zoom - online

Presenter: Nina Tran

Sponsor: Inland Empire/Pomona Valley Chapter

About the workshop: Unlike skinny jeans and bellbottoms, Italic is timeless, versatile, and never goes out of fashion.

   Since its development, during the Italian Renaissance, Italic has undergone many transformations and variations in formality and style.  In this class, students will have the opportunity to learn the simplest and most practical style: basic monoline Italic.

   Once we've learned the standard skeletal form, we will explore simple letter variations and conclude with a brief overview of basic Roman Capitals to pair with our Italic minuscules.

Workshop will be recorded and available to registered participants for one month.

Required Skill Level: all levels welcome
