Learn the secrets of historical typography with this hands-on workshop on Art Deco lettering. Popular in the roaring 20s and 30s, this style embodies the glamour, luxury, and exuberance of the Great Gatsby Era.

In this one day class, Nick will quickly cover the foundations of lettering and briskly segue into dramatic uppercase letterforms, unexpected ligatures, geometric scripts, and ornamentation. You’ll learn three Art Deco hand lettering styles to prepare you for your final project: a postcard for a 1920/30s jazz club.

Nick Misani parle le français, pas de problèmes pour les participants locaux français mal à l’aise avec la langue anglaise.
