Saturday, April 28th at 1pm at Faith and Life Bookstore in Newton, Kansas
Saturday, May 19th at 10am 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 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.]
Emilee will cover all the basics of lettering using brush markers and watercolor paints. AND as a bonus, she’ll teach you step by step how to paint some beautiful loose watercolor florals. Students of all ages [9 to 99] and experience [or lack thereof] are welcome! You will learn basic marker and brush techniques and troubleshooting, how to create a brush-lettering style, form loose illustrated florals, and the steps to take a piece from concept to finalized artwork. Along the way, Emilee will also demonstrate how to combine the letters into words, how to create/define your own style and artistic touch, and how to blend colors on the page to create an ombre look. Each student will receive one-on-one attention and individual help!
Emilee will be at Faith and Life Bookstore (606 N. Main, Newton, Kansas 67114) Saturday, April 28th from 1-3:30pm and then the weekend following Mother’s Day, Saturday, May 19th from 10am-12:30pm we’ll be at Love of Character (3200 E Douglas, Wichita, KS 67208). There is no better way to brush off [pun intended ☺️] the Winter blues than by grabbing a friend or two and playing in lots of color! And you’ll definitely want to save some time to shop before or after! Tickets are $89 and include all of your supplies that you get to take home and keep!
The entire kit includes:
- Brush Lettering & Watercolor instructional workbook
- 3 of Emilee’s favorite artistic brushes which include two small round brushes she uses for lettering and one large round brush for washes and floral artwork
- 36-color watercolor palette
- Water jar
- Sketching pencil
- 2 of her favorite markers for lettering
- Spiral-bound notepad (30 sheets) of Canon watercolor cold-pressed paper
- AND A BONUS for this class is a jar of both white and gold ink. Emilee gets asked all the time what are my favorite inks in gold and white, so she decided to add this on as an additional perk for this class! These inks are perfect for contemporary envelope addressing or to just add the extra special touch to your project!
