To keep us energized with lettering throughout the year, we’ve created the 8″x8″ Letters and Lines challenge!

At the beginning of each meeting, all ECS members are invited to display a piece that they’ve been working on. Your submission is meant to be a work in progress, not a finished piece. Your submission can be anything – use it as an opportunity to experiment with a new-to-you writing instrument/ink/paper, get feedback on work from a class or workshop, or show off your grocery list…and let the ink flow on. We’ll also provide monthly suggestions in case you’re stuck for ideas.

Remember that the Letters and Lines submissions are an opportunity to share and learn from one another. See how happy accidents and mistakes are handled. It’s an excellent opportunity to learn from one another!

Make sure to bring along something you have worked on or discovered since the last meeting. We welcome both finished works, as well as works in progress, a practice sheet or even some interesting samples of lettering you and others might find inspirational.

September – “PENS, PAPERS, BOOKS”
