Introduction to Calligraphy and the Italic Alphabet

This workshop gives an introduction and overview to the classic lettering arts;

Where it has been and how it is used today.  The Italic alphabet is a base for learning good letter forms, especially for good cursive writing.  Students will learn to use a broad edge pen to form the letters while learning the history of these Italian letters and why they are still popular today.  Students may also use a mono-line pen and practice connecting these letters to form a nice cursive writing system.  Modern calligraphy styles are something else entirely and not considered classic lettering. Although that is fun and we will talk about modern styles, this class is structured to provide good classic letter forms.

Students will be asked to write a quote, suitable for framing.  Bring a quote of choice.

Materials and paper will be supplied/available - $75 includes the time in the full day session and a kit with beginning supplies – class limit is 6 students.  Private lessons are available by appointment and may include 1 or 2 students only – for $125 per person.  A private lesson allows me to sit with you and give you direct attention.

Bring a box lunch and snacks will be provided.  There are plenty of places within 3 miles to pick up a sandwich as well.
