THE APRIL MEETING...2018
We are excited for this new year. In our January Meeting we introduced our theme for this year: "LEARN THE RULE/BEND THE RULE." Once again, we will bring back the project at the end of each meeting and also homework with an incentive prize.
We will meet at the Utah Cultural Celebration Center,
1355 W. 3100 S. West Valley City,
Saturday, March 17 • 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Judy Sommerfeldt will teach at our April Meeting. As a follow-up to our March study of the uncial alphabet, we are going to explore the beautiful Neugebauer cap’s, a contemporary variation of uncial and another example of “bending the rules.” Using three different monoline writing tools––a pencil, 05 Micron pigma pen, and the B-nib, we will acquaint ourselves with the energetic and robust architecture of these generously proportioned upper-case letterforms developed by Austrian calligrapher, Friedrich Neugebauer. Using examples of his work we will discover how this hand can be used to create a visual tapestry of rhythm, pattern, texture, and movement on the page.
Following some good lettering time, Brecken Cook with teach us how to make Hedi Kyle’s Portland envelope with one of our practice sheets. Join us for a wonderful meeting of discovery and creativity.
