  1. Supply List

One of the most popular styles used in contemporary Western calligraphy is the elegant Italic script, also known as Chancery Cursive. It was developed from antique Latin texts and inscriptions during the Italian Renaissance by the 15th century Florentine scribe Niccolò Niccoli and became the model for italic printing types. These versatile and legible hand-written alphabets remain popular and translate well into many practical and artistic applications.

In class exercises, learn the construction of each letter to form words that have correct proportions and angles. Plan to use them for basic projects using various colors and papers. The class is appropriate for beginners or intermediate students with some familiarity with the broad-edge pen who are ready to develop their calligraphy skills.
