Calligraphy and Lettering Course for Kids             age 7 to 15 (or whatever!)

 

CALLIGRAKIDS WORKSHOPS AGES 7 - 15 (THIS CAN BE TAILORED TO FIT TWO  AGE LEVELS) I added another four workshops in August. 8, 15, 22, 29

Each of these four workshops will be in two parts. The first half of each class will focus  on cursive and modern calligraphy. The second half will focus on fonts and lettering and fun things to do with them!

You can read the full course outline here.


Monster Mayhem!

Monster Mayhem

In this 3 hour workshop we will start by looking at the different parts of a monster and drawing as many variations we can come up with. How many monster eyes can we think of? How many mouths? And so on. Next, using a collection of different templates (based on the four basic parts of a letter) we will spend some time forming as many letters as we can. Finally we will form and draw our initial, add our monster elements, outline and colour. Participants will get a monster alphabet poster to take home and colour. 


Mermaid Magic!

Mermaid Magic

In this 3 hour workshop we will start by thinking about what makes a mermaid a mermaid and how we can make our letters feel “mermaidish! Tails and scales? colour? Shells and bubbles? Then we will practice drawing these elements. Next, using a collection of different templates (based on the four basic parts of a letter) we will spend some time forming as many letters as we can. Finally we will form and draw our initial, add our ‘mermaid’ elements, outline and colour. Participants will get a mermaid alphabet poster to take home and colour.
