Let's try a virtual pointed pen class! Please read this in its entirety and email samantha@paintedpalettes.com with any questions! ________________________________________________________________


WHO: This class is for people who are new to Modern Pointed Pen and need supplies. This will be a two hour class where I will ship you the supplies beforehand and walk you through my workbook page by page to create beautiful lettering.


If you've already taken my Intro to MPP class in person---while I would LOVE to have you in the workshop---you might be bored because we will be going through the workbook page by page like we did the first time around. Instead, I suggest you tune into my page for some quick tutorials and live sessions.



Tickets: $90

Sam ships you all workshops supplies listed below a week prior to the workshop, including personalized goodies, all pens and paper, and the printed workbook ________________________________________________________________


WHAT/Class Description: In this two hour workshop, Samantha Testa will show you how to use beginner pointed pen supplies and guide you through basic drills and practice sheets to start making beautiful calligraphy. A small class size means one on one guidance, help with drills, the pen strokes, letterforms, flourishing, and stylizing your writing. You will use these skills to create your own postcard set.

The workshop fee includes, but isn't limited to, shipping of all materials and preparation:

-a personalized MPP workbook with several styles of lettering, tracing paper, scrap paper, notepad, 2 nibs, a nib holder, black sumi ink, and a set of postcards to personalize.

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 lettering before but would just like some more guidance, we can make that happen, too!



Sign up to participate in the LIVE Intro to Modern Pointed Pen Workshop on Wednesday 2/10 from 5-7pm EST _______________________________________________________
