Beautiful Words: Hand-Lettering Basics
Join us for an afternoon exploring the beautiful penmanship of Kentuckians past! Participants will examine documents and artifacts in KHS collections to see how Kentuckians have used the written word to express themselves and create beautiful works of art. Then we’ll learn some basic techniques used in modern hand lettering styles. Finally, we’ll create our own works of art as we hand-letter quotations and poems by famous Kentuckians! Come join the fun! All materials will be provided, along with coffee or hot tea and cookies.
