Lettering Like Niki

Standard

A few weeks ago, I went to see the exhibit on Niki de Saint Phalle: Mythical California at the California Center for the Arts, Escondido.

One of the K teachers saw an IG post about my visit and the second Saturday class I took at the center that was about lettering. She asked me if I would do letter embellishing with her students. I agreed.

The classroom teacher printed the student’s names in large block letters. We talked about many different ways you can embellish letters and how Niki de St. Phalle decorated many letters in her journals. We looked at letter like Niki as well as other decorative lettering and then the students embellished their names in marker.

I think they are so creative and fun. I can hardly believe they are just kinders.
