    About the Program

    Syeda will teach us how to create gorgeous florals and leaves utilizing the triangle brush in watercolor. Not only will we cover how to paint the flowers and leaves, but sundry techniques, layouts, styles, and color combos. After demonstration, we will be doing a small project. This program is open to students on all levels, from beginning to advanced. 

    Syeda taught this session for the Inland Empire/Pomona Valley chapter last year. We, the San Diego chapter,  are now scheduling it, again, due to popular demand..

    • Gouache
      • Winsor & Newton recommended in contrasting colors
      • Syeda likes a blue and pink combination

    • Watercolor Paper (Canson XL or any you prefer)

    Mini Workshop

    San Diego Regional

    Contact: Kristi Darwick

    $35

    Be sure to scroll entire length for details and terms/conditions.

    Description:

    This class will give you yet another reason to love Foundational Hand -- if that's even possible!  In this mini workshop, we'll study and practice the skeletal forms of Edward Johnston's (1872-1944) Foundational hand coupled with skeletal Roman Capitals.

    Because this hand is based on a circular o, it's easy and fun to learn.  No previous Foundational Hand experience is necessary.  In fact, if Foundational Hand is something you've been curious about, perhaps learning this monolinear forms is good place to begin.

    SAN DIEGO CHAPTER

    Tentatively, Saturday, September 11. More information and images will be posted, soon!

    This program will be part of our Practice Challenge. We'll be using Play Sheets as motivation to experiment and for practice. The variations are only limited by our imagination.  Kristi was inspired by Kingsley Benefield, who in turn, adopted the concept during classes with Marsha Brady. During this session, we'll walk through guided exercises to enhance our enthusiasm around the practice of calligraphy.

    You may wish to save some of your sheets for next month's activity: Meander Books.
