Join Nancy Sharon Collins’s Monogram Class Saturday, April 7, 2016 @ Gallier Historic House in New Orleans French Quarter and then letter writing Tuesday-Wednesday, May 17-18 with Switzerland County Historic Society Conservator’s Holiday on the picturesque banks of the Ohio River.
April 7, experience how monograms are hand drawn then walk away with your very own pencil sketch of it (that you yourself have drawn!) In this hands-on class examples of vintage monograms, lettering styles and engraving will be on display–students will learn to make new symbols, traditional monograms, and letterforms using these historic pieces as inspiration. By tracing, combining then retracing existing forms, new, totally original designs, monograms and letterforms will be created.
During May’s Conservator’s Holiday, Mrs. Collins’s will provide the ever popular Letter Writing workshop, the notorious “Mrs. Collins Regrets”, and the infamous Calling Card presentation originally given in 2014. Seating is limited, so reserve your spot now by contacting the Director, Martha Bladen, for your reservation, directions, and further information: 812-427-3560.
