Currents Gallery: Faux Illuminations

Cindy Stinson-Chennell, Instructor

Illumination is the art of adding decoration and gold leaf to text. Faux Illumination doesn’t use real gold leaf, but uses the great new gold pens available in art supply stores. We will look at and practice the decoration of the initial letters of text, then use pens to decorate and add the faux gold. You will also be given tips on how to print out text on your computer to look like old, hand lettered manuscripts. Friday, November 1, 1-5pm

4- Hour class: $45 +$10 materials fee to instructor
