Intro to watercolor lettering

Join KLJ Design Co. (Instagram: @kljdesignco/@kristieljen) at The Lemon Bowl DC for a relaxing and fun afternoon learning a beautiful new skill. In this workshop, attendees will learn the basics of brush lettering with watercolor, including how to work with the medium, how to make basic strokes, and simple troubleshooting techniques. Attendees will leave the workshop with a motivational quote, painted in their own style and colors.

The workshop fee includes all materials, including watercolor set, waterbrush pen, paper, and exemplar strokes guide. Attendees can hope to unwind on a Saturday afternoon with tasty refreshments, new friends, and a new life-long hobby!

Tickets: $125


Kristie Jen is a self-taught hand-letterer and calligrapher. Her love of lettering spawned from simple doodles and a long-term interest in letterforms and typography. Watercolor is her favorite medium to work with because it's so accessible and forgiving (which, we all need sometimes :) ). When she's not obsessively thinking about lettering and calligraphy and how to make beautiful things for her incredible clients, she works as a data specialist for DC Public Schools, where she can use the left side of her brain to help school leaders improve student outcomes.
