Intro to Hand Lettering


Join Samantha Testa, the owner of Painted Palettes, at The Lemon Collective for an afternoon of hand lettering and good vibes!

In this workshop, you will learn the basics of hand lettering using four unique pens perfect for brush calligraphy and faux calligraphy. You will have a personalized workbook that walks you through the step by step process and provides four different styles to practice. You will have several blank greeting cards ready for you to letter on and personalize to make your own set.

The workshop fee includes a personalized hand lettering workbook with several styles of lettering, 4 unique pens perfect for hand lettering, and access to shared materials to complete the workshop skills and make your greeting card set, and light sips and snacks!

We'll go over the basics so if you are a total newbie...don't worry, you've got this. If you have done some hand lettering before but would just like some more guidance, we can make that happen, too!

Check out Instagram (@painted_palettes) and Painted Palettes' website for everything else!

*Please note: We will NOT be covering traditional, dip pen calligraphy. This is a modern hand lettering class, using pen and marker techniques.

Tickets: $75

About your Host, Samantha Testa

Samantha spends her time teaching hand lettering workshops,  providing gorgeous lettering for her clients' events, and painting commissioned watercolor illustrations.

Formerly a first grade teacher, Samantha naturally gravitates towards making meaningful connections with her clients through her workshops and artwork. She enjoys making art accessible and helping people realize their own creativity! 

A passion for making beautiful things was ignited early on in her hometown of Youngstown, OH. Her grandfather was a phenomenal artist and he would paint with her when she was a child. She still has a set of his brushes that she uses from time to time.

Samantha loves and is inspired by the District of Columbia, puns, coffee, red wine, fresh flowers, and the "little things."
