Evening Presentation:
**Kimmi encouraged us to use Wacky Letters for a poem or saying we brought. She had exemplars from Ewan Clayton’s class he taught during conference here using Ben Shahn’s lettering style and Emily Brown Shield’s lettering. We were asked to write something in block form using white gouache, Doc Martin’s, or a gel pen. It was a lot of fun and easy to do! Thanks, Kimmi!
