About Terence
Terence is a freelance lettering artist and graphic designer from Houston, Texas. He has been obsessed with artistic handwriting and drawing letters since childhood, but didn't begin intentional practice until 2013 when the Instagram boom exposed him to calligraphers like Colin, Matt Vergotis, and Daniel Palacios. He has now integrated what began as a serious hobby into his professional design workflow, where magic markers are now among his go-to tools for designing logos and lifestyle goods.

Workshop Details

Learn the cheapest, easiest and most fun way to write beautifully with the craziest of instruments; a marker.

In this class, Colin & Terence will give a short introduction into the art of calligraphy followed by in-depth tutorials of the basic fundamentals, techniques to achieve stylistic results and incorporating your writing into a hand lettered piece.

  • Small group reviews and discussions as well as one-on-one feedback

  • Access to a brand new private Facebook Group for Crayligraphers only where you’ll be able to post your work and receive feedback from Colin and fellow students

  • A 3 color screen print poster designed by Colin and created to help motivate and inspire people—especially through their calligraphy endeavors
