Painted Palettes | Watercoloring + Hand Lettering Workshop

  • Steadfast Supply 300 Tingey Street Southeast Washington, DC, 20003 United States (map)

1:00PM – 3:00PM

Join Samantha Testa, owner of Painted Palettes, at Steadfast Supply for an afternoon of hand lettering, watercoloring, and good vibes!

In this workshop, you will learn the basics of hand lettering using four unique pens and four different styles to practice. In addition, you will learn basic watercolor wash techniques to create a colorful watercolor background for your favorite quotation. At the end of this class, you will have practiced your new skills and made an original 5x7 quotation/watercolor piece of art to hang in your house or give as a gift!

The workshop fee includes all materials necessary to create your very own print. You'll also get to take home a personalized hand lettering workbook with several styles of lettering and 4 unique pens perfect for hand lettering to continue making original art at home!

We'll go over the basics, so if you are a total newbie...don't worry, you've got this. If you have done some hand lettering before but would just like some more guidance, we can make that happen, too!

Kindly note that we will not be covering traditional, dip pen calligraphy. This is a modern hand lettering class, using pen and watercolor techniques that are equally awesome.
