Italic brush calligraphy workshop with Kane Melegatti
The Fundación Tres Culturas’ (Three Cultures Foundation’s) CARPET project (Craft Art and People Together) promotes rapprochement of artists and citizens and to this effect organises workshop-encounters with local artists and those on residencies in the city.
On this occasion, the workshop is a practical one of initiation into italic brush calligraphy to obtain calligraphy compositions in a very recognisable style. The technique taught allows attractive results to be obtained from a very early stage. The participants will learn the structures of italic font and how to reproduce it correctly with a brush, starting by discovering the origins of the style before later developing the entire alphabet and the variants.
Free activity, restricted to 10 participants. Enrolment essential via this link.
Pentel Aqualash brush pen and pot of black tempera or gouache paint.
The CARPET Project is coordinated by the Fundación Tres Culturas (Three Cultures Foundation) along with partners Creative Kernow in the UK, CEARTE in Portugal and APDN in Morocco. This project has financial support from the European Europa Creativa programme.
