Our calligraphy artist, Brooklyn Duncan, will familiarize the students with the proper preparation and care for pointed pens, provide information on the best writing surfaces for calligraphy, then work the students through a workbook, teaching them the alphabet formation for modern calligraphy. Students will also be provided instruction on connecting the alphabet by practicing writing words and short phrases. At the end of the class, students will complete a final project to take home and share their new skills with their friends and family.
This class is the perfect cross road between traditional and modern calligraphy. Students will be taught to take the characteristics of modern calligraphy and apply them using a traditional pointed dip pen and calligraphy ink to create beautiful pieces of handwritten art.
