In Edmonds, WA, May 4th & 5th, Write On Calligraphers will be holding the 30th Annual, Letters of Joy, A Festival for Calligraphers and Lettering Artists. Friday night's keynote speaker will be Barbara Close, a calligrapher and graphic designer from Santa Ana, California. On Saturday, attendees get to choose from 3, 2 hour classes on lettering, journaling or other paper arts. I am delighted to be teaching this year! I'll be offering the same class for all three sessions.
Merge the gracefulness of writing with expressive line and watercolor to add artistic borders and spot illustrations to your work. You'll learn how to work with your own natural gesture and sense of design. Add to that the magic of color and shading to create imaginative and delightful art to enhance your lettering. All levels welcome.
Here is a sample of what we'll be doing:

Spring is on her way! The tulip bulbs are up all over the yard! I'll share photos soon. Keep your fingers crossed they don't bloom during Artfest!
