Learn to express yourself with watercolours and brushes. Spark your creativity by combining the beautiful art of drawing letters with the ethereal quality of watercolours. Watercolour is a delicate and beautifully forgiving medium used for many art forms.
Join Liz for this workshop as we discover how we can maximize the features of watercolours for calligraphy to create many different textures for our lettering pieces. The skills learned in this workshop can also be applied to other water-based mediums such as Ecoline and Tombow brush markers and Crayola markers!
