Teacher: Joanne Wasserman

What you'll learn in this calligraphy & hand lettering class:

Explore memories and ideas for making pictures and symbol imagery that can be fitted together, forming a playful composition by drawing and painting inside, outside, or perhaps all around the Alphabet Letter(s) that you invent. This class is an adventure for individuals to invent, taking from within themselves a story to be told through fanciful, colorful and imaginative letter form drawings. Like a game of Clue, these “modern illuminated letters” are meaningful expressions from the Artist-maker that viewers are able to perceive and intuit.

Materials: Fine Watercolor papers and paints, brushes, and a calligraphy pointed pen. 

No prior experience in art or calligraphy is required.

All supplies provided.

Modern Illumination Capitals
Reviewed by Anonymous on 2/3/2019
Great opportunity to learn from a master calligrapher, Joanne Wasserman.The focus of the class was on students developing ccontemporary interpretations of traditional illuminated manuscript capitals. Joanne emphasized the visual “stories” which might be told through using decorated letters as a springboard to the imagination of the artist. Even though illuminated script is a revered, centuries-old art, Joanne encouraged us to explore our own expressive style in the class projects. Materials provided were good quality and the instruction and inspiration by the teacher first rate! You definitely don’t have to be a calligrapher to take this class—only to have a willingness to put your own spin on a a beautiful traditional art form.
