Private and Group Lessons
Whether you prefer to gather your crew or the solitude of private lessons, my teaching is completely tailored to your calligraphy needs.
Lessons typically range from 1-2 hours each session and cover letter basics, strokes, flourishing, and all points in between. Copious exemplars, samples, and guide sheets are included in my fee. Supplies can be purchased on your own or through me for a nominal fee. A very fun add on is always a few projects which could include writing on balloons, mugs, pumpkins, Christmas ornaments, and acrylic sheets.
Workshops and fundraising
Have fun and learn while you raise funds for your cause!
I always love helping groups to raise funds and gladly host teaching workshops and other crafting events throughout the year.
Whether it be canvas panel painting, watercolor calligraphy, or personalizing all kinds of Christmas and other holiday items, I always love lending my creativity and talent to groups. There’s just something about gathering a group together in fellowship for a greater cause!
Custom canvas painting
I recently had the pleasure of spending the evening with a group of women raising funds for their mission out reach programs at church. In this particular fund raiser, I was asked to lightly sketch a saying, passage, or quote on a canvas panel. Participants then gathered to paint their panels, sharing stories, painting tips, advice on everything and nothing, and left with a completely custom work of art!
This fundraiser had me on site to provide direction and support for the evening, however, my contribution can always just be the sketching of sayings and quotes.
Pumpkins have become one of my favorite surfaces to write on and personalize. The little white ones with twisty, curly stems are perfect for office gifts and Thanksgiving place cards, while the larger pumpkins always finish the fall decorated porch just perfectly! Fall trips to the pumpkin patch are always so much fun when I’m scoping out the perfect white or pink pumpkins with the perfectly rounded surface for personalizing.
Most of my pumpkin fundraisers entail just the writing or personalizations, however, lettering on site is a great way to involve the crowd and get more people interested in joining the fundraiser. I’m always available to letter on site and love the interaction I am afforded spending a day lettering someone’s special name or saying. What a great personalized gift this is for someone and sure to be unique!
