On November 12 & 13, 2016, Douglas Boyd took us on a journey of art and calligraphy via examples, demonstrations and work-along exercises. In the Letter Art Tango workshop, participants took an ordinary sketchbook and turned it into a multi-media collection of information, papers and art techniques. Throughout the weekend Doug encouraged participants to gain a broader knowledge of art in general, and helped attendees  experiment with their tools and materials...and just have fun. Some of the comments from participants are listed below.

  • Doug is extremely knowledgeable and has shared his vast know-how with heart-felt enthusiasm.
  • Learned a great deal about the properties of different materials:  pencils, watercolors, papers, erasers and the varieties available.
  • Doug’s dedication, thoroughness and attention to detail makes him a most excellent teacher.
  • This should be a requirement for all.
  • Enjoyed learning how to add interest to letters by using variations of colors even in the same letter.
  • What a fun weekend workshop!  Lots of activities with different mediums on a variety of papers;  in the end we had a book of papers and notes and blank pages on which to experiment.
  • I loved the concept of working together as ARTISTS, in an ‘Atelier’ setting.  This concept set a mood and gave participants a sense of working as artists and “being an artist.”
