Hand Lettering: Ben Shahn Letters

Details

Ben Shahn was a 20th century Lithuanian-born American artist. He is best known for his works of social realism, his left-wing political views, and his series of lectures published as The Shape of Content, but lettering artists also admire his original lettering styles which are playful and unique. In this workshop, we will be learning one of these lettering styles using the folded pen as our writing tool. On day one we will focus on the details of lettering and spacing and designing with the letters, and on day two we will work with the letters in three different ways: writing with watercolors, ink and graphite, and metallic gouache on dark paper.

Prerequisites: This workshop is appropriate for all levels of experience, though some previous lettering experience is helpful.
