05/21/17 Sun. 2:00 to 4:00 PM Creative Writing with Michael Tabb
Comic book icon Stan Lee says, “With Michael’s tips, writer’s block is a thing of the past!” Michael explains how to generate a story fit for the movies from a blank slate, inspired by his upcoming book PreWrites: Going from Zero to Story. These methods can be used to brainstorm a story idea for ANY creative writing medium.Howard Rodman, the president of Hollywood’s Writers Guild of America, states, “Michael Tabb has thought long, hard, and usefully about how to write screenplays with vision and intent. He understands premise, character, conflict, drama; far more importantly, he can impart wisdom about all of them without condescending or ‘dumbing down.’ I know of no better guide to the work of writing that happens before we write.” For more information about Michael and the book, see Michael’s website at www.michaeltabbwga.com.
05/21/17 Sun. 2:00 to 4:00 PM Zenspirations ® Patterning with Joanne Fink
Rhythmic patterns can enhance any piece – whether an illustration, border or initial. Join master calligrapher Joanne Fink, author of Zenspirations Patterns & Lettering, to create your very own Zenspirations design. Joanne will start by teaching a few simple patterns, and will show participants how to do a simple illustration, and then double-stroke it to create space along the perimeter. Using Sakura’s Micron 01 pen, participants will create their own unique Zenspirations design by decorating these perimeter spaces with patterns. Everyone will complete their design by adding touches of metallic and glitter color with Sakura’s Stardust® and metallic Gelly Roll® pens.
