I have a tiny addiction to markers.
Markers of any kind.
I love how they write differently; how the colors look on various types of papers and surfaces; and how beautiful they are blended together.
And of course...I love how they looked organized in pretty and unlikely containers.
I use markers to doodle, write and create. I love using markers when I am creating hand lettering for projects, school projects with Hagan and personal letters and cards.
After buying a new set of metallic markers today, I came across something new and really cool from our friends at Crayola.Crayoligraphy...a Beginner's Guide To Hand Lettering.
This Crayola Calligraphy Tutorial is just one that you find on YouTube. I love watching these and they are very helpful to share with students.
Another super helpful resource you will find on the site is the Beginner's Guide To Hand Lettering that Lisa Funk of Hand Lettered Design.
Lisa is one of my favorite follows on Instagram!
I get so many cool ideas and inspiration from her. You can follow her here.
You will find almost 20,000 shares already using #Crayoligraphy!
Hand lettering would be the perfect activity and art to bring to your Makerspace.
It is an activity that doesn't require a lot of materials and are reasonably priced. These activities can be set up anywhere in the library, classroom and throughout the school. Materials could be sent home so children can learn, practice and create projects on their own.
The sky is the limit.
I promise....a container filled with color like the ones we have at home will definitely bring lots of smiles and love to your library, classrooms and homes too.
