Accidents Will Happen
with Belgian lettering artist and teacher
Accidents will happen, even worse, we’ll make them happen on purpose. Instead of carefully planning the piece and then spending hours executing it, students will learn how to react upon what’s already on the paper. It’s like life itself; you’re given some cards but it’s up to you to make the most out of it. Students will be pushed out of their comfort zone; they’ll have to reassess the work in progress and be resourceful in finding solution for the problems they (or others) have created. They will learn how to iron out mistakes, how to redirect the focal point, where to add some writing, when, where, and how to apply gesso and where to stop. The design exercises will be interspersed with writing exercises in which the basics of interesting gestural writing and drawn lettering will be explained and immediately put into practice. This workshop in all about the process of making an unexpected, authentic work, but many will return home with one or more finished pieces
