Let’s learn Calligraphy! We’ll start off with a round lettering style that emerged from Ireland and get comfortable writing with the broad edge nib. With projects and practice sheets, we’ll develop control of our letters then turn them into fun and funky colorful creations. We will be using 2 pen sizes: the 6.0 mm and the 3.0 mm Parallel cartridge pen.
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.

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.
