Service Description

DATE CHANGED from 5/17-18 to 5/10-11! In this class, students get to be explorers as well as artists with designer and calligrapher Julie Wildman, when we take to the outdoors to find our inspiration for creating interesting letterforms. Class will begin with a jaunt around the grounds, looking for natural objects to be used as models to illustrate an alphabet or quote. Students will then look at some calligraphic hands/fonts and learn principles of creating an alphabet. After creating an illustrated word or quote with their handmade letterforms, students will make an accordion-fold book to take home. Some materials provided; a complete supply list will be provided. Instructor Julie Wildman is a professional in the fields of graphic design, commercial lettering, calligraphy and workshops. With over 25 years of experience, she loves using both sides of her brain to bring a creative spark and superb organization skills to every project or workshop. Her calligraphic expertise is frequently sought after for staff development classes, on-site promotional events, community programs and personal growth workshops both locally in the Chicagoland area and throughout the U.S. and Canada. Registration deadline: April 26, 2024. All supplies are included, and lunch will be provided each day. This workshop is provided with partial support from the Cleveland Cliffs Foundation.
