This private camp for the typography students at Art Center will focus exclusively on script lettering with a touch of calligraphy.

You will learn about and create your own style with a variety of lettering approaches, letter skeletons, pointed brush lettering techniques, and detailed lettering refinements. Never done this before? No problem! We promise that you don’t need to have had any previous experience in hand lettering or typography. Computers aren’t needed – this day is all analog.

By the end of this camp, you will have a variety of script and calligraphic pieces that are both individual and collaborative. You will have challenged yourself in new ways and experimented with creative processes. The lettering and script skill set and procedural method can be applied to numerous different future projects.
