October meeting

At our October 16 meeting, we’ll be working with another monoline alphabet and making some new design decisions.

This will be the fourth meeting in which we work on a long-term project exploring watercolors and monoline lettering. This month we’ll be working with a new lettering style on the Monoline Alphabets sheet, so be sure to bring this handout, and the Paper Ruler guide, to the meeting. 

If you’re joining us for the first time, please let us know you’re coming and Diana will have copies of the handouts available for you.

Also, please bring your finished pages from our previous meetings. It’s always fun to see what everyone has done!

Supplies to bring:

  • The two handouts you received at June’s meeting
  • A quotation that fits your theme, about 25 words in length
  • 6 x 9 watercolor paper
  • Practice paper (for working with monoline alphabet)
  • Watercolors
  • Brushes
  • Watercolor container
  • Water bottle (with water)
  • Paper Towels
  • Pencil
  • Ruler
  • Micron Pens, Black, in varying sizes .005-08
  • Board, masonite or hard cardboard
  • Watercolor pencils (optional) 
  • Light-tack masking tape (artist’s tape, or blue or purple painter’s tape)

Come prepared with your supplies and be ready to jump into this long-term project!  

As always, please bring anything you’re working on or finished recently. If you attended the weekend workshop with Amity Parks, bring some of the pieces you did to show others.  We want to see what creative thing you’ve been up to!
