Brush lettering, the art of creating letters that seem to dance, is a very simple practice that can be done anywhere. In this workshop, we will learn the basic strokes that will allow you to build the letters and join them to form words. We will also learn and practice with two brush sizes to learn the similarities and differences between them. Materials will be provided, and you only need to show up willing to practice, practice, and practice. At the end of the workshop, participants will have lettered their own Christmas tags to take home. Supplies will be provided.
