Calligraphy is as old as writing itself and endures as a highly respected form of art around the world today. The versatility of calligraphy can be seen as an enhancement to everyday writing tasks, a craft, and a fine art when combined with painting, sculpture, textiles, and printmaking.
In this workshop, students will learn basic calligraphy skills including preparing and writing with a metal nib pen, managing liquid ink, and practicing the Foundational hand. Strategies for at-home practice will be emphasized. The product for the day will be the creation of a hand-lettered and painted simple art book.
This class is recommended for beginning – intermediate students or those who have taken Calligraphy: The Art of Beautiful Handwriting, Part I although this is not a pre-requisite.
