Hand lettering has taken the creative world by storm! In this follow-up course we will build on the skills introduced in the beginner’s Hand Lettering class. We will go deeper into a variety of new alphabets (including upper-case), a broad range of flourishing techniques, as well as cover shadowing, spacing tips, and lay-out design tricks for your personal projects!

ACADEMY ANNOUNCES VENUE REOPENING GUIDELINES

The Academy Center of the Arts has always put our patrons, our supporters, and our community members first. That’s why, when COVID-19 began to spread throughout the region, we closed our doors ahead of official governing regulations, and why we continue to put tremendous thought into when and how we will reopen those doors to the public in the future.

 

Following Governor Northam’s Executive Order No. 65, we are officially releasing our plans to reopen our educational and gallery venues, as well as our guidelines for reopening our performance venues in the future.
