This year-long lettering journey is inspired by a different master each month. With a sneak-peek into their studios and practices, we will have the opportunity to learn how those working as visual practitioners, calligraphers, and graffiti artists use the same tools we use—and introduce us to new ones—to make letters. So grab your markers and let’s go!
Corrina Keeling is a sidewalk chalk revolutionary, graphic recorder extraordinaire, and maker of music to move you. She uses songwriting, facilitation, clowning, and killer handwriting to create containers in public space that allow people to have complex and uncomfortable conversations about power and oppression, justice and inequity, and place and belonging. She's curious about how to invite people into embodying the qualities she sees as the best medicine: compassion, curiosity, deep listening, and gratitude. She hopes her work can be a love letter for everybody, and her wish for the world is for everyone to have a place for their gifts. Corrina believes dresses without pockets are a patriarchal conspiracy and should be outlawed, and she spends the majority of her free time looking for her headphones.
You can enjoy her work online at www.lovelettersforeverybody.ca and on Instagram @lovelettersforeverybody
NOTE: THIS IS A SINGLE SESSION
This 1 hour, 45-minute session covers Corrina's approach and insights to how she:
• Creates her letterforms.
• Chooses which letters to use and when. She even has a hierarchy chart!
• Connects letters and the importance of the relationship between letters and words.
• How the letterforms are not so much related on a baseline but about space, shape, size, crossbars, connectors, etc.
And what a bonus that she shares her sidewalk paint recipe with us!
Also included is a 2-page exemplar of Corrina's letters, 22 pages of her demo notes, and 2 bonus charts of her Hierarchy. Please be patient as it downloads. It may take a few minutes.
