Summer Teen Studio: Creative Lettering

This event last occurred on July 20—24, 2020.

Turn your words into art with hand lettering! We’ll cover lettering basics, proportions, font styles, layouts, and modern calligraphy. You’ll learn how to make compositional design choices and add decorative elements like flourishes, banners and frames to make your work stand out! We’ll complete several projects to practice your lettering skills, like DIY greeting cards, envelope art, wall art, and signage. We’ll also develop our own original lettering fonts.  Students will also get a sneak peek of upcoming exhibition, Visionary New England, and artwork in deCordova’s collection that features hand lettering
