2 1/2 - 5 day class Suitable for all skill levels
Supply fee of approx. $45 provides canvas and many media for trial use
Calligraphers have discovered the richness and convenience of working on canvas - but there are so many methods, mediums, and types of canvas. And what if you don't do much brush writing and want to use your favorite pens? What if you want the permanence, brightness, or flexibility of acrylics but the control of flow and matte look of gouache? You can do it! Here's your chance to try a whole slew of media for both backgrounds and writing, including water-soluble acrylics, medium that makes ink more like gouache, four types of canvas, and more. You will make notes right on the margins of your canvas trials and create a gorgeous sample/reference book. Go home ready to do things your way - the look, the flow, the surface you enjoy most with reference info to recreate various effects, and don't forget a sample of stretching your own canvas.
Limit of 12 participants (unless there is a lot of room and two willing assistants)

Five -day class is ideal - allows for plenty of individual work in many media, completing a canvas sample book plus a stretched canvas piece of art. Two-and-a-half days works with most finishing a resource book but will be a bit more "production-line" on laying backgrounds and no time for stretching, just a demo.
