Introduction to Pointed-Pen Calligraphy
8-Session Daytime Course
Monday, April 13 to June 8, 2020 – 1:30 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. (no class May 25)

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 place cards, and can take your personal correspondence to a whole new level.
Beginning with basic tools and mechanics, students discover how to develop their skills and to recognize the small details that make this style of writing so appealing. They learn to work with color and how to use this hand in different sizes and in various applications—from writing in a simple format to working on a more artistic expression of a text. No prior calligraphy experience is needed and all supplies are provided.
