Calligraphy can be a meditation as well as an art form if you slow down and enjoy the beautiful process stroke by stroke. Students will learn the fundamentals of calligraphy by working with three different calligraphy tools. First we'll use a pointed pen and learn a copperplate alphabet, a beautiful, elegant 18th century script style. Then, we will switch to a broad edge marker and learn an Italic alphabet, a versatile 15th century calligraphy style. Finally, we will learn modern calligraphy techniques using a brush pen. Beginner students will progress from learning the basic letter forms to writing sentences. This class is for both absolute beginners and more experienced students who would like to fine tune their skills.
