CALLIGRAPHY CAMP! Explore Color with traditional letters

July 18 through 22nd
5 mornings; 11 am to 12:30 pm EST
Live online course via Zoom

Classes will be recorded and made available to students.
Please register by July 5th to ensure arrival of supplies. This is a hard deadline.

DESCRIPTION: Let’s learn Calligraphy! This round, classic lettering style is a great way to introduce yourself to broad edge nib calligraphy. Students will write with professional quality cartridge pens. We will use two different-sized pens and explore traditional presentations of these round letters and create modern, colorful, contemporary projects in each class. 

MATERIALS: I feel very strongly that high quality materials are critical to success when learning calligraphy. Calligraphy is a challenging skill to learn and requires patience, persistence and of course, practice. The last thing a person new to calligraphy needs is inferior equipment that impedes the learning curve. That is why we will all be working with a standard set of quality equipment.

The class will be recorded and made available to students.

TIME: Each 90-minute class is a diverse combination of learning about the art of calligraphy, seeing samples, student lettering and creating projects. There will also be a small assignment given after each class to practice the skill that was introduced. This return to lettering later in the day is a great way to create the muscle memory that is so important to calligraphy.

Each class also builds on the class before and does not repeat the same information.
