A Message from Stacey Johnson, President, East and Winter Park Campuses
Due to popular demand, Graphic Design Professors Kristy Pennino and Amanda Kern are transforming their Learning Day workshop on hand lettering into an academic credit course this summer.
To be offered Wednesday, June 6 – Wednesday, July 25, 2018, the eight-week course, GRA2930: Zen of Handmade Type/Lettering, will expand upon the Learning Day workshop and explore hand lettering techniques and tools. The course will be held on Wednesdays from 1:30 to 6:15 p.m.
“Our Learning Day session was filled in a very short time with many requests to take our hand lettering course,” Kristy and Amanda explained.
They continued, “This course is a workshop-like approach to teaching hand lettering, and it will give you the opportunity to explore a variety of tools and techniques to include brush lettering, decorative lettering, ornamental lettering and linocut. It’s certain to be a fun and creative summer session.”
