SUMMER WORKSHOP CALENDAR

Southern CA Brush Lettering Workshops with Olivia of Atiliay.com

I’m excited to share the summer workshop calendar with you! It’s one of the best times to learn brush lettering because you have plenty of time to practice and get ready to use your new skill for the holidays! I’ll be teaching three part 1 classes and one part 2 class.


PART 1 COVERS ALL THE BASICS–the best tools to use, how to hold a brush pen, how to create basic strokes, how to make letters, and how to build words. You will receive 3 of my favorite brush pens for beginners, a workbook with worksheets, and different papers to try. After the class you will receive over 50 PDFs that you can print out at home to keep practicing and continue your lettering journey with as well as helpful links and resources.

PART 2 COVERS WAYS TO EMBELLISH AND DEVELOP YOUR LETTERING STYLE. In this workshop we go over how to create movement  or “bounce” in your letters, get started on adding “flourishes”, how to layout sentences or quotes, and we’ll also talk about developing your style. You’ll receive 3 new pens (different from the ones you get in the part 1 class), a workbook with worksheets, and a packet of paper. After the class you will receive PDFs and resources to help you as you continue your lettering journey.

Please note that basic knowledge of brush lettering is a prerequisite for the part 2 class–you should feel comfortable with the basics including lettering words–it doesn’t have to be perfect but you understand how to create the strokes and connect letters.  

I recommend taking part 1 before taking part 2 but if you are self taught or have taken another beginner’s lettering workshop or course, that is fine too! If you have any questions on whether this is the right class for you or not, please let me know and I’ll be happy to help! You can reach me at hello@atiliay.com.


Below is the current summer workshop calendar and you can also always find all the workshops and any new added dates here.

I had the lovely opportunity to letter with new friends and help celebrate a birthday at this Beginners Brush Lettering Workshop! Thank you Lesley (Happy Birthday!), Patricia, Anna, Jesselle, Kelli, Neriah, Angie, Sarah, and Daniella for joining me and helping to provide meals! It was really wonderful getting to spend time with you and creating together—I hope our paths cross again in the future! It was also so awesome to help celebrate Lesley’s birthday (which was that actual day!) who came to the workshop with her mother, daughter, and sister–I thought that was so special to be able to have the whole family at this class! Thank you always to Lauree of LG Collective for hosting us at RunwayTrash!

I had a wonderful time getting to know you and really appreciate the opportunity to get to letter together. You all did a great job (so don’t be too hard on yourselves ;))—I know this is only the beginning of your lettering journey! Thank you always to Jack for hosting us in his gorgeous space at The Potting Shed!


5.27.19 | OH SHINY PAPER CO | SAN GABRIEL

San Gabriel Brush Lettering Workshop - Atiliay.com

Thank you Lisa, Anna, and Meagan for joining me this past weekend for a beginners brush lettering workshop at Oh Shiny Paper Co! One of the things I’m really glad we talked about during our time together was the idea of not feeling discouraged! I totally get it because I was actually discouraged before I even picked up a pen–I used to think that lettering was beautiful but too hard and not something I could do. The first time I did pick up a brush pen, it looked NOTHING like what I was seeing on Instagram and no matter what I did, it seemed like I couldn’t get the strokes right! But after discovering different brush pens, figuring how to hold the pen correctly, learning the basic strokes, and really dedicating time to practice, I started to see an improvement!⁣

I’ve been lettering for almost 4 years now and I am so glad I didn’t throw in the towel! And I think it’s totally normal to get discouraged from time to time, but don’t let that stop you, no matter where you are on your lettering journey–keep going! Everyone has to start somewhere, everyone has to make that first shaky upstroke. Continue to practice and hone your craft, you will definitely see yourself grow and improve!⁣

I had a wonderful time with you ladies and it made me so happy to hear some of you say you were feeling inspired at the end of the workshop! And thank you also for helping me provide meals for little ones at The EEC Preschool & Nursery.

Thank you Britt, Nicole, Monica, Dana, Kate and Ariday for kicking off March workshops with me! And a special thank you to Mandy who attended a workshop last month and told Kate about it–it means a lot to me when someone has enjoyed a workshop enough to share it with their friends and family! I am going to end this recap with an awesome husband story: Britt’s other half actually gifted her a certificate for both part 1 and part 2 workshops for Christmas last year–it’s something she’d been interested in learning and I thought that was so thoughtful of him! :)

MARCH BRUSH LETTERING WORKSHOPS

Atiliay Brush Lettering Workshops Part 1 and Part 2

I’m excited to be teaching both Beginners Brush Lettering Part 1 and Part 2 this month! Details and the link to purchase tickets are below. If these dates don’t work for you, check the Workshop Calendar for future dates or contact me to host a private workshop at your home with your friends! 

What’s the difference between a Part 1 class and a Part 2 workshop?

.

Part 1 covers the basics–this is the class to take if you have no experience or have dabbled on your own and would like more direction/aren’t sure if you are doing it right. We will go over tools and supplies used in brush lettering, how to hold the pen, how to create basic strokes, how to create letters, how to create words, and we’ll also go over common mistakes and project ideas. You will receive one-on-one direction and time to practice and ask questions.

Included in this workshop are: my favorite 3 brush pens in varying sizes for beginners, a selection of paper, workbook and worksheets, and an additional 50+ PDFs that will be emailed to you for you to print out at home and continue practicing. 

Part 2 is designed for beginners who have taken Part 1 or have basic brush lettering knowledge and feel comfortable with creating strokes, letters, and words. In this workshop we will add more style and decorative elements to our lettering by learning how to create bounce/movement and how to add flourishes. We will also go over how to layout a sentence or quote.

Included in this workshop are: 3 brush pens I like using for decorative elements (different from the ones you received in the part 1 class), a selection of paper, workbook and worksheets, and PDFs that will be emailed to you for you to print out at home and continue practicing.

JAN + FEB 2019 | MODERN BRUSH CALLIGRAPHY WORKSHOP RECAP

After a short holiday break, it was nice to get back to teaching modern brush calligraphy workshops! I had the chance to return to some of my favorite venues, teach at a new location, and of course make new friends :) My favorite part of the workshops is definitely getting to know so many wonderful people who I probably wouldn’t have crossed paths with otherwise. This first few months of workshops have also been extra special because several people have shared that they really love the give back aspect and it’s something they strongly connect with. Hearing that really warms my heart–it’s something that I am very passionate about and the reason why Atiliay exists! :)

Workshops For A Cause: Each workshop seat helps to provide 20 meals for The Ebongalethu Educare Center Preschool & Nursery in Motherwell, South Africa
January and February workshops helped to provide 1,280 meals!
Thank you to every attendee who made this possible!

Long Beach Brush Lettering Workshop by Atiliay

I had the wonderful opportunity of kicking off 2019 with back to back workshops at RunwayTrash in Long Beach! Lauree is the hostess with the mostess and what makes this extra special is that she hosted my very first workshop 2 years ago so I feel like it has come full circle :) Thank you Laura, Erin, Arisbet, Alfreda, Vanessa, Erin, Cathy, Rachel, Camee and Teresa, Janice, Rachel, Lilia, Brenda, Gisela, Aprilyn, and Shikha for being part of the first workshops of the year! PS: RunwayTrash has the BEST collection of vintage clothes and accessories as well as a variety of goods from local makers and artists!


1.13.19 | THE POTTING SHED | ORANGE

Orange County Brush Lettering Workshop by Atiliay

This is one of my favorite places to teach at because The Potting Shed is such a beautiful and inspiring space (it is both a gift shop and nursery and where I get my succulents)! I got to see some familiar faces as well as meet new friends. These ladies did an AMAZING job with lettering and it was so nice to spend the morning getting to know each other and lettering together! Thank you Teri, Debbi, Shiloe, Kylie, Chloe, René, Molly, Reo, and Debra for joining me for this workshop!


1.26.19 | OH SHINY PAPER CO | SAN GABRIEL

Los Angeles Brush Lettering Workshop by Atiliay

It was great to be back at Oh Shiny Paper Co in their bright, fun, and colorful balloon-filled space! Kelly of OSPC joined in on the workshop fun along with Jayne, Katie, Tiffany, Lyla, Katy, Hyun, Sarah, and Lily! Jayne reached out after the class to let me know that she chose my workshop because she really connected with the giving back aspect–it’s something that is important to her too and she sponsors a little girl in Ethiopia! Reading that was really special and I love that this is something that is close to both of our hearts.


2.3.19 | OH SHINY PAPER CO | SAN GABRIEL

Los Angeles Brush Lettering Workshop by Atiliay

Los Angeles Brush Lettering Workshop by Atiliay

This is the second year in a row I’ve spend Superbowl Sunday teaching at Oh Shiny Paper Co–and I wouldn’t have it any other way :)! Thank you Pearlin, Nathalie, Angie, Susan, Robin, Guy, Megan, and Fiona as well as Becca (who also hosted us!), Lauren, Joey, Yvonne, Kate, Sherry, Jennifer and Yoko for spending this rainy day lettering with me! I loved that Pearlin really connected with the give back aspect and I also had Girl Scout Lauren join the class because she’d like to teach her fellow scouts brush lettering for one of her projects! I loved getting to know everyone and had so much fun–and I actually made it back to see the half time show!

Los Angeles Brush Lettering Workshop by Atiliay

Los Angeles Brush Lettering Workshop by Atiliay

This was my first workshop teaching at Cottonwood Home! They are a lifestyle brand dedicated to kiddos and they host workshops for both children and adults at their bright and open space. A big thank you to owner Kari for hosting us–it was so wonderful to meet her in person! We had a great group of creative ladies that rainy morning–Carol, Sylvia, Ruth, Allison, and Kacy! I really enjoyed my time with them and I absolutely loved the green wall so we took 2 class pics :)

Orange County Brush Lettering Workshop by Atiliay

Thank you Andra, Traci, Mandy, Kelly, Susan, and Ann for joining me at The Potting Shed for a Sunday Funday workshop!

2.20.19 | WEST ELM | COSTA MESA

West Elm Costa Mesa Brush Lettering Workshop by Atiliay

I got to wrap up February with a workshop at West Elm South Coast Plaza with Rie, Donna, Claire, Catherine, and Linda! This was a mid-week evening workshop and it was nice to change things up and get creative on a Wednesday night! Both Catherine and Donna asked how I ended up teaching a class at West Elm so I thought I’d share that with you as well–I had seen other workshops take place at West Elm and they do a great job of showcasing local artists and hosting pop-ups and classes at their stores. I love their furniture and thought it’d be a beautiful place to teach so I reached out and that’s how I connected with them. Thank you ladies for joining me for a workshop and a special thank you to West Elm and their team for hosting us!
