Type Kita Academy: Chalk Lettering Workshop with Kay Aranzanso

Type Kita Chalk-15


When In Manila, learn all kinds of awesome stuff with Type Kita! 

Type Kita Academy is dedicated to everything about — well, TYPE! It all started with the Type Kita Exhibit wherein they showcased various artists and their type creations. This year, they established the Type Kita Academy wherein they are offering various (and not to mention, awesome!) workshops for the type-lovers.


The class to kickstart the Type Kita Academy school year is Basic Chalk Lettering Class with designer Kay Aranzanso and I was lucky and altogether elated to join the class!

The class was held at Commune in Salcedo, Makati. Commune was the perfect place to house workshops like these as it has a very chill and homey feel to it. Plus they have great coffee too!

I did say great coffee, right? And 100% cute too! Don’t forget to try their 3D art latte!
