The Center for the Lettering Arts was established in 2010 as a resource to encourage the use of hand lettering as an
expressive art, and to promote its use through collaboration in graphic design
We offer classes and workshops in hand lettering, organize lectures and workshops for student groups and host exhibits in our gallery.
Hand Lettering Classes
The Center for the Lettering Arts at Mystic Blue Signs offers a eight-week class in hand lettering including pencil drawings, calligraphy and handwriting. We believe this is the most comprehensive lettering class taught
in the New Orleans area. Students working at all levels are welcome.
In this studio class we use historic letter styles as models for letter forms. Students will explore formal and creative aspects of lettering made by different types of instruments and complete assignments using those styles.
Letter styles to be introduced are Roman capitals, sans serif letters, italic, foundational, black letter, copperplate (formal pen script), and informal handwriting.
We will also discuss design principles and methods for converting hand lettering to digital formats for printing.
Classes will be taught by professional lettering artists Yvette Rutledge and Vince Mitchell, owners of Mystic Blue Signs. Both Eve and Vince have taught lettering at conferences, as well as workshops and classes for professional organizations and college graphic design programs.
Class meets Tuesdays evenings from 7:00 to 9:00pm, January 9 - March 12, 2024. Cost of the class is $445, including tools and materials.
Because enrollment is limited, advanced registration is required. For more information, call Eve or Vince at (504)525-4691
