Topic: Modern Calligraphy
No prior knowledge necessary
Duration: Wednesday, 5:30pm – Friday, 4:00pm
At the Hotel Erica
Spring awakening is in the air. The freshness and joy are palpable. The energy is flowing, the desire for new experiences is awakened, just the perfect timing for the next course. Our accommodation will be in the newly renovated Hotel Erica in Langenbruck/BL. Built in neo-baroque/art nouveau style, it exudes a special charm, surrounded by the wooded hills of the Kettenjura. It is the only health resort in Baselland.
I quote an advertisement from 1910: “If you ever feel the pressure of life, relax in Langenbruck.”
Surely one more reason for us to spend some time there and celebrate the beginning of spring.
Introduction to the cursive, modern calligraphic script a mix of Anglaise script and Humanist cursive. A dancing script that leaves room for one’s own individuality, adapted of the handwriting. By using gouache and acrylic paint, done with brushstrokes and colorful accents the script will turn into a spring-like scene. Collage elements are added as a diverse complement. With all the gained new knowledges a small designed artwork will be created.
