Brush Lettering on Stones and Slates with Rosella Garavaglia

March 24, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

We’ll be painting letters words or phrases on pebbles and stone (slate tiles for example) using gouache and acrylics. Experience with brush writing will be desirable but otherwise a reasonable control of the brush as a painting tool will be helpful.
I always admire the expressive power of lettering painted on natural forms designed and modelled by mother nature. The 3 dimentional quality of pebbles will challenge our skills and stretch our imagination. They’re often used at weddings as place cards or paper weights at home, but they can also be used as part of an artistic installation or as the surface for an alphabet design.
