From Pencil to Paper
with  Ann Purdy


Join Ann Purdy as she shows how wonderfully versatile the graphite pencil can be in creating letters of different styles. Through the process of drawing letters, you will develop a sharper eye for detail in your letter forms. This will naturally lend to improving other calligraphic hands as well. You will be shown ways to refine shading to enhance the smooth texture graphite can offer. Ann will share some practical techniques from her experience as a hyper-realistic graphite artist and how they can be applied to delicateness of graphite lettering. After creating the foundation for using graphite, you will have an opportunity to experiment with integrating a bit of watercolour to a graphite piece.Date: Saturday, March 28 & Sunday, March 29, 2020
