Spring Lettering JAM SESSION for A Cause

Painted Palettes and The Ministry are bringing back Lettering Jam Sessions to benefit LLS!

At last! A place where you can come chat with other lettering enthusiasts, hone your skills, bring your favorite lettering materials, and get tips from DC based lettering pro, Samantha Testa! 

The low cost of this ticket includes a beverage (a delightful glass of wine or coffee/tea from The Ministry), various paper goods, and access to the best lettering books and materials. Most of all, it is a great way to designate time to practice this unique skill and get your lettering questions answered.

The best part about this event is that all profits will go to the Leukemia Lymphoma Society in an effort to fund research, find cures, and ensure access to treatments for blood cancer patients. LLS uses 88 cents to every dollar to do just that!

If you choose to donate to LLS, you will recieve a FREE Flourish and Style Guide to Brush Calligraphy 

*WHO IS THIS SESSION GOOD FOR?

-Someone who has taken any of Painted Palettes' Intro to Lettering classes. You don't have to be great at it yet.
-Someone who has taken ANY Intro to lettering courses with another instructor (in person or online). You don't have to be great at it yet.
-Someone who has been teaching themselves lettering/calligraphy and would like to ask clarifying questions in person. You don't have to be great at it yet.
-Get it?! You don't have to be great at it yet, you just have to know the basics and have a desire to practice.
-ALL SKILL LEVELS WELCOME

**This workshop is not an intro class. If you have no background knowledge of lettering, please see Painted Palettes' Intro Classes scheduled around DC. She would love to get you started!

April Harvard Business Review & Ladies Night

Women, Work & Wine

ABOUT:
Think of this evening as a book club, meets wine club, meets boss lady get together. Instead of a book, we will be reading an article from Harvard Business Review's latest edition, The Feedback Fallacy.

WHO SHOULD COME:
This event is open to women who work - that is it! It doesn't matter if you work for a huge company or you are a solo practitioner/entrepreneur. What we ask is that if you join the conversation it should be in a productive and insightful way but you can also just come and listen!
