BRUSH - WRITTEN IMPERIAL ROMANS
with Paul Herrera
A FAST PACED WORKSHOP that MOVES

from REED-WRITING to BRUSH-WRITING
This workshop will guide you through a hands-on understanding of the Imperial Roman Alphabet as you utilize an inside-out approach to these timeless letter forms. You will learn the special characteristics and ‘personality’ of the brush as contrasted with hard-tool calligraphy while practicing the essential elements of the classical Roman letter form.
Before the workshop is done you will move on to writing out the entire alphabet in the same manner as the ancient Roman inscription maker would do prior to cutting the letters in stone. A short inscription cutting demonstration will be provided as an addition to the class.

BRUSH & PEN COMPOSITION
A HANDS-ON WORKSHOP in LAYOUT and DESIGN

with Paul Herrera
This workshop builds upon the brush handling experience acquired in the Brush Roman class. We will discuss layout and composition of a finished calligraphic piece. The final work will showcase the calligrapher’s ability with the soft tool brush and hard tool pen writing. Letter size and color contrast are important elements to consider in this one-page calligraphic piece. Movement and texture also contribute to the final impact of every composition. The most important element to this workshop is FUN. You will have a great time in this relaxed environment as you combine various calligraphic hands into one finished composition.
