What is lettering?
Lettering is an umbrella term that encompasses the art of drawing letters rather than writing them. Lettering is considered an art form where each letter of a phrase or quote serves as an illustration. Each letter is crafted with attention to detail and plays a unique role in the composition.
During the Lettering Course you will
- Become familiar with the anatomy and character of the letters.
- Learn basic writing techniques.
- Gain knowledge to design unique letters for e.g. logos or headlines.
- Get a good base for future work with letters, e.g. on a chalkboard.
Price of the course: 90€ / *75€ for students. Course is conducted in Estonian, English and Russian.
