Illuminated Initials – November 19 9am-noon
Instructor: Bev Choltco-Devlin
Location: Hamilton Public Library, Community Room
MAD Art member $20/$25 non-member
Participants will create their own illuminated (decorated) initial letter inspired by such works as The Book of Kells, the Lindisfarne Gospel, the Book of Days and those of William Blake. You can model your letter after the traditional forms and styles used by illuminators over the millennia or feel free to create your own expressive initial with motifs and symbols from your own life. Fundamentals of letterform construction will be covered as a starting point. All basic paper and supplies will be supplied but an optional materials list will be provided to registered participants. No prior lettering, drawing or calligraphic experience is needed. This workshop is intended for teens and adults.
Bev Choltco-Devlin has studied art and printmaking at the Academy of Art, the Museum of Modern Art and the DeYoung Museum in San Francisco, CA and the Munson-Williams Proctor Institute in Utica, along with taking several classes at MAD Art, Inc. Her professional work in calligraphy has included clients in San Francisco (The Executive Forum and other several other corporate businesses), Colgate University, and a variety of commissioned works, as well as teaching a calligraphy workshop last fall. Beverly works as the reference and electronic resources specialist for the Mid-York Library System.
