August 9@10:00 AM - August 12@4:00 PM$180
Back to the 1400’s and the scripted letter; we’ll be working with the Italic alphabet. Practice makes perfect so there will be plenty of that in addition to working with some designs that bring old letters into the 21st century. We’ll study the work of calligraphers past and present and look at possibilities for illuminating letters with gold leaf. Lots to learn about methods and materials in 3 days. No previous experience needed. A lot can be accomplished in a short time.

ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR:
In her work, Kris Engman explores various subjects, materials and genres as a painter of the Maine landscape. Most recently, she has exhibited at the Arden Gallery in Boston, the Schmidtberger Fine Arts Gallery in Pennsylvania, The Geras Tousignant Gallery in San Francisco and the Courthouse Gallery in Ellsworth. Kris received her MFA from the University of Pennsylvania and her BFA from the Maine College of Art. Although Engman’s artistic focus was as a sculptor for twenty-five years, for more than 15 years, she has painted the Maine landscape and worked from, what she defines as, ‘the ‘simplest of still lifes’. The work is an expression of color and pattern in some sort of balance that feels connected to daily routines and observations. From her Belfast studio, Kris teaches workshops in collaboration with Waterfall Arts in Color Theory at all levels and Basic Drawing. These workshops are run as well through River Arts in Damariscotta and in the Master Series at The Engine in Biddeford. She also teaches drawing, design and painting in the University of Maine Art Department.
