The beginning of a fairy tale starts with a big beautiful initial letter. Today we will work with the first letter of your name to create a beautiful ornamental letter/monogram in celebration of hand made typography. We will create our own decorative initial cap font using colored pencils and markers. We’ll start out with a brief history of letters, look at a few examples from past to present and then take off on our own journey exploring myriad ways to embellish, flourish and design our own abstract or floral initial letter. If you have a favorite pen or marker you use, bring it with you.

We have scholarships available for this class based on financial need. Please have a non family member send us and email or letter on your behalf and we will waive all but $10 of the class fee. Register your student over the phone or in person. | 402 Main Street Norway ME 04268 | 207-739-2664
