Brush Pen Calligraphy provides a terrific, no fuss way to get started with hand lettering. In this class we will explore the fundamentals of brush pen basics and the basic supplies you need to get started. Create your own beautiful and personal style of brush pen lettering as you work your way through this workshop. At the end of this class, and with plenty of practice, you will definitely gain the tools necessary to develop an aesthetic brush pen lettering style all your own!

In this workshop, you will learn:

  • What brush pen lettering supplies you need and how to use them
  • Basic individual strokes to create letters, numbers, and symbols
  • Practice exercises that will help you continue to improve
  • Lowercase alphabet stroke sequences and word layout

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.
