ABOUT THIS PROGRAM: In this drawing-with-a-pointed-pen mini class, you will learn how to draw 4 different flowers. These field flowers are lilacs, anemones, irises and poppies. You will be able to create each shape with basic pointed pen strokes. You will also acquire tips on designing a composition to complement it with your calligraphy or lettering. As a final project you will make a card or a floral composition ready to add a quote or poem with your calligraphy.
LEVEL: be able to use a pointed pen. There won't be time time to troubleshoot pen/ink issues.
This program will be recorded and available for viewing for a month following the session.
