Calligraphy Study Group

Calligraphy Study Group

Continue your exploration into the art of calligraphy in 6 weeks of studio time with individualized instruction.

Demonstration and individualized instruction to help each student hone their calligraphic skills. Not for pure beginners (consider the spring Calligraphy Workshop [below] or fall Foundational class). Mini-lesson on a calligraphic topic to start each class, then participants can work on their own projects with the guidance of a local calligrapher with over 30 years of experience.

Proper care of tools, good practice habits, spacing and layout, various calligraphic hands, and anything calligraphic are possibilities to be presented and explored as students open the door to this amazing art form. 

6 Tuesdays are scheduled but students can come to any or all. It is recommended to pre-register at least a week in advance of each session in order that appropriate materials can be made available. Some materials will be provided and others will be recommended (to be purchased by student) depending on interests.

Calligraphy Workshop: Learn Italic Writing

Calligraphy Workshop: Learn Italic Writing

Begin your exploration into the art of calligraphy in a 6-week workshop by a local calligrapher with over 30 years of experience.

This workshop will introduce beginning-to-intermediate students to the Italic Hand. The Italic Hand is one of the most popular styles used in contemporary Western calligraphy, and is often one of the first scripts learned by beginning calligraphers.

This workshop will provide step-by-step demonstration and individualized instruction to help each student produce beautiful Italic letterforms. If you have experience with Italic, let's explore some variations or ways to make your Italic more dynamic! Proper care of tools, good practice habits, spacing and layout, resources, and other calligraphic possibilities will be presented and explored as students open the door to this amazing art form.

All materials will be provided and are included in the fee. (If you have some experience with calligraphy - feel free to bring any tools you might already have and want to use).
