Saturday, October 21 | 2-5 p.m.

Celebrate the art of the sign by crafting your own, using hand lettering techniques to achieve a vintage and timeless charm! Students will gain knowledge of different lettering styles, using guides for drawing letterforms that are referenced from history and traditional sign painting. From selecting the perfect type pairings to planning the layout, each step is an exploration of timeless techniques and creativity. For a final project, sketches will be transferred to a board, paint pens will be used to add bold color, and embellishments will finish off the custom artwork. Students will leave with a thorough understanding of hand lettering, as well as a unique sign to display in their home.

I'm Lauren Beck, of Ren & Ink LLC, a lettering artist and illustrator based out of my home studio in Allentown, PA. I specialize in calligraphy and digitally drawn designs, while also leading local workshops for children and adults. With a variety of mediums in my toolbelt, I strive to create work that celebrates bold motifs with dynamic curves. Detailed linework and sleek script lettering strokes add movement throughout my compositions. Often my subjects include florals and nature, adding a touch of charm with illustrative flourishes and sparkles!
