Calligraphy by instructor Lee Ann Clark

The elegant script, commonly known as Copperplate, is unmatched in its usefulness for social stationery. The rhythm and grace of the letterform is used on invitations, menus, and placecards, and can take your personal correspondence to a whole new level.

Further explore the versatility of this tool and continue to hone your skills with formal writing, focusing on capital letters, alternate letterforms, and flourishing. Contemporary styles with modern twists and variations are also examined.
