I have been attracted to the beauty of each stroke of Roman letters and the unique textures that result from writing texts with Roman letters. The textures we calligraphers make with strokes and marks have specific characters. The order of strokes and marks to form letters and writing text with the order is a very systematic process. And we all express our feelings in the process. There are many different ways to make calligraphic textures. Writing blocks of traditional letterforms in good spacing or lines of handwriting can be beautiful textures. Keep that in mind, we will experiment creating illegible textures that viewers can feel first, not read or understand. The process can be called abstract calligraphy expression. Day 1: For making unique and expressive textures we create variations of monoline letterforms, and choose one that suits the meaning of individuals' chosen text and create an alphabet. Day2-3: For making pleasant calligraphic textures on our eyes, we will do basic texture making exercises with the monoline alphabet. In this workshop we will concentrate on the usage of folded pens and pointed brushes to add weight on the monoline textures as well as non calligraphic tools. We will work on different speed, rhythm, movement and scale for making expressive textures. Day 3-4: For making effective textures and calligraphic pieces, study of layering, value, color, mediums, basic design layout and composition will be instructed. At the end of the workshop, we will bind all exercise sheets in a book format and ideas of final products will be presented.
