Exploring the rich history of Greek writing from its earliest appearance over 2500 years ago will help us better understand its crucial link to our own and expand our way of seeing and understanding letters. Examining various writing systems and styles as exercises will furnish interesting possibilities in our work. We will be working with Greek letters and short bits of ancient texts, but will also be devising Latin forms to harmonize with the Greek so as to write in English. Letters will be explored in terms of their pattern making potential, as well as unique designs in their own right.
To complement our lettering we will work with motifs apropos to each period gleaned from historical artifacts; we will create gilded and painted designs using a variety of techniques – flat gilding and tooling with various instruments, debossing, sgraffito, and cutting and collage with papers we will gild. We will also consider writing over top of gilded surfaces and explore some of the traditional Greek palettes. Students will be encouraged to create a book documenting their explorations or work on a finished piece based on what inspires them through the process.
