In this class, we will learn several letters using a pencil and a fine black marker to draw these beautiful medieval capitals. They accompanied the Uncial and half Uncial alphabets in the 3rd to almost 9th century. This workshop will be 3 hours, with plenty of time to make some lovely artwork. No experience is necessary, and we'll have fun looking at and doing ancient letters and more modern forms.

There’ll be lots of hands-on personal guidance throughout as you are guided through the wonderful process of making a beautiful painting.
