Calligrams

Homework Hashtag: #kcacalligrams

Have you ever seen a calligram, one of those pictures ‘drawn’ with words and asked yourself how these are done? In this class, I will teach you how to write a calligram two ways. Outlined calligrams create a delicate look whereas filled calligrams are more expressive. You will learn the techniques required for both types starting with an easy form. From there, you will learn how to write calligrams that are more intricate. By the end of this class, you’ll be able to apply the basic techniques and develop your very own calligrams.

Art Appreciation Journal With Vintage Aesthetic

Homework Hashtag: #kcavintagejournal

In this class, I will be showing you how I repurpose my calligraphy artworks – that are sometimes scattered and under appreciated after being posted on Instagram – into cutouts for beautiful journal pages. Additionally, I will also use my journal for memorable quotes, combine them with small ephemera like old movie tickets and decorate them with stickers, washi tapes and old papers. I will show you my favorite tools and how I make layouts to make it look balanced. This way, by flipping pages, I can go down memory lane and appreciate my creations in a new way.

Note: I won’t be teaching calligraphy, but you can write in normal handwriting or cursive, using fountain pens or any of your favorite tools.
