ABOUT THIS CLASS SERIES: This 6-week class leads you on a colorful path through gorgeous greens, blissful blues, and passionate purples by exploring color choices for a lettering project to complete in class. While learning the basics of color theory we will discover how to create a simple watercolor background and how to write with gouache to produce a pleasing project in which the colors harmonize beautifully. Students should have some experience writing with dip pens.

All levels. Sessions will be recorded and available for two months after close of class. 

ABOUT CAROL:  I can't remember a time when I didn't enjoy the act of writing. Early fond memories include pleasant hours of both writing and drawing. Pen and ink fascinated me in high school and college art classes.

  •     As an adult, I was intrigued by the calligraphy styles I learned in a survey class. The intriguing thick and thin lines created by the broad-edged pen captivated me!
  •      After years of classes and study I begin taking on clients and students. I've been in business now for 35+ years, all the while enjoying new friends who come across my path because of calligraphy.
  •     Founder and member of Waco calligraphy guild – 1988, member of Kalifrafos (Dallas) 1999 – present, Captivating Color mini-workshop teacher at Legacies III
