Join abstract artist and calligrapher Nicole Young in an exploration of hand lettering styles and mixed media painting.

In this demo you will learn some basic calligraphy skills such as forming and connecting letters, adding weight to them and the tricks to using brush pens. These calligraphy techniques will then be combined with abstract painting strategies, demonstrating a cohesive way to blend painting and hand lettering.

Participants will leave with a basic knowledge of modern calligraphy techniques and ways to play with combining painting, drawing and hand lettering.
