Doodle Amour class at French General

In a couple weeks, on Saturday, February 9th, in the afternoon,
this lucky girl will be teaching a doodle lettering class
in the fabulous atmosphere that is French General in L.A.

My generous friend Kaari Meng, warmly supported by her sister, mother, and daughter, concocted this idea with me one lovely evening last summer in France.

To honor French General, I added a few French ribbon swirls to my doodle lettering and outlined a ribbon heart for Valentine's Day and put them together for the February class which we've called "Doodle Amour".

The class will focus on how to turn your handwriting into doodle lettering similar to mine, with examples and demos and hands-on practice.  My class sample, including more doodled pages sewn together as a small booklet, is on view at the store.

If you're in the L.A. area, it would be my pleasure
to share with you my new-found love of doodle lettering.

Because learning is beautiful, n'est-ce pas?  And since I'm still learning, too, I expect to learn so much from all those in class with me, for I believe the best artistic expression is always a two-way street.

According to Molly, there are still a few openings in the class, with details listed under Workshops on the French General site.
