I have just loved partnering with Love of Character––my all time favorite gift and paper goods shop––to bring you my past workshops! It has been such a joy to meet students of many different artistic levels and experience, and a privilege to pass on my years of artistry experience to teach these students the basics of calligraphy and watercolor. More recently, I was asked to bring this workshop back to my childhood stomping grounds in Newton, Kansas at Faith & Life Bookstore.  [Fun fact, I worked at F&L for several years when the store was across the street from the Harvey County Courthouse.]

NEW! Brush Lettering & Watercolor Workshop

Introducing Emilee’s NEW Brush Lettering & Watercolor Workshop featured at Love of Character in Wichita, Kansas

I have just loved partnering with Love of Character––my all time favorite gift and paper goods shop––to bring you my Calligraphy Workshops! It has been such a joy to meet students of many different artistic levels and experience, and a privilege to pass on my years of artistry to these wonderful people! More recently I have received several requests for a faux-ligraphy (fake calligraphy), brush lettering, and a watercolor class from clients and past students. Therefore, I have decided to create a workshop just for this! Does a pointed pen intimidate you? Would you like to learn some basic marker and watercolor artistic skills? Do you need an easy way to do some fun lettering without having to whip out a plethora of supplies? Do you want to bring new life to your handwriting, envelope addressing, and card-making? Are you an experienced letter who wants to add a new skill to expand your repertoire? Need a special gift for a guy/gal in your life for Christmas or a fun date out? Then this is the class for you!
