BENSGOTHIC

with Violet Smythe

We hope you will join us as Violet takes us on a journey looking at one of Ben Shahn’s  lettering styles, Bensgothic. She will show us her stylized variations and how she nests, stacks, and uses colour. This is an interactive program so you will have the opportunity to do some lettering. It is strongly suggested that you have a folded pen like the New Horizon
Nib (favoured by Yukimi Annand) or a Luthis Libelula or Tim’s Pen or a cola pen that can create fine line. If you don’t have any of these, you could opt for a stiff drawing nib
(pointed) or a Brause ¾ mm nib.

What to have on hand…
1. Folded pen(s) [and or Brause 3/4mm nib or
a stiff drawing nib]
2. Inks ? your favorite inks (sumi, walnut,
bister, other…) / liquid watercolor like
Ecoline (optional)
3. Paper ? good bond or Strathmore 400
series sketchbook or text wove or
something you like to work on that takes
ink and or watercolour
4. water containers

Finetec or similar
7. White gouache or Dr Martin Pen white or bleed proof white

January: Introduction to Modern Calligraphy Miniscules @ Zoom

Introduction to Modern Calligraphy Miniscules

with Maurlle de los Santos

It’s not Copperplate, Engrosser’s Script or Spencerian. It’s “Modern
Calligraphy”. Some think this means anything goes, but anything goes often
results in just a mess. Join us as Maurelle takes us through a lower case
alphabet. You can participate in this program with a simple pencil and piece of paper or you can try out either a straight pen and ink or an oblique one! This is up to you
and to the supplies you have!

Please join us at our January (Zoom) meeting for a FREE pointed pen demo with Maurelle de los Santos in Modern Pointed Pen calligraphy. It’s the perfect opportunity to find out who we are and what we have to offer!
Space is limited.
Non-members register with Eventbrite.

This is up to you and to the supplies you have!
