This four-day workshop is a crash course in the essentials of sign painting, with fun, lettering and laughs throughout.
The first part of the workshop is focussed on honing your Gothic (Block), Casual and Script letter forms through a hands-on process of practice, personal critique and expert guidance. It all starts with a pencil, drawing and developing an understanding of the basic letter forms. These then form the basis for building your brush skills.
With the basics under control, the next two days are given over to developing a range of techniques to add a little something extra to your painted letter forms. Mike will guide you through a variety of lettering effects, including: basic shadows; outlines; bevels; convex and concave lettering; trick lettering; masking lettering; cut and roll fades. The aim is to accelerate your ability to create more distinctive lettering for all sorts of purposes.
Find a more detailed illustrated breakdown of the syllabus on this blog post, and keep in touch with updates via the dedicated Facebook event.
The workshop fee of $795 includes all equipment, and a copy of Mike’s folding alphabets sheet which is only available to workshop participants. You just need to turn up in clothing that you don’t mind getting covered in paint!
