Two of our members, Pat and Schin, have posted photos of their gorgeous calligraphy/artwork on their Facebook pages. They have given us permission to put their art on our blog. The Fabulous Las Vegas Scribes are so lucky to have such talented members. Thanks to both of you for allowing us to share your works of art on our blog.
What a great invention the Internet is - thank you Al Gore ;-). We brought our phones, tablets, and notebooks and hooked into Gaudin Ford's wi-fi to watch a You Tube video on drawing celtic knot work. And it all worked! Then we moved on to gothic lettering - and the newbies got a lesson on ruling guidelines, pen widths, letter slope, and deciphering the instructions on lettering sheets. The snacks were great with some killer brownies showing up on the table but they were tempered with fruit and a green salad to keep us balanced.
Three new members joined us this month - what a great group we are becoming - the creative energy that pulsed all afternoon was so inspiring and invigorating. There was so much talent in the room, so much experience, and everyone sharing what they know by bringing in workshop handouts, demonstrating techniques, volunteering to set up a study group, and lots of talking and laughing.
Check out our Facebook page (there's a link below the logo, above) to see more photos and then join us next month for Gothicized italic and some watercolor techniques. Thank you Gaudin for such a great room to use. See you on March 15!!
Share the love of calligraphy and related paper arts in Las Vegas with delight, commitment to excellence and a healthy dose of humor.
