Italic Calligraphy: Calligraphy One

To sign up for the Wednesday evening class, Nov 14th -  Dec 19th, 2012, contact Jacob Gunter at

Calligraphy One: Italic with Anne Elser
Beginner to Intermediate | $190 | Min. 5/ Max. 8
The Italic calligraphic hand is one of the most widely used and versatile alphabets around. It is highly legible and can easily be dressed up or down. Italic is the perfect hand to learn for the beginning calligrapher yet versatile enough to experiment with for the advanced.
During the six week course, students will be given handouts and guide sheets, learning the upper and lower case characters. We will also address spacing and layout for addressing envelopes.
Calligraphy is less about pretty handwriting, but more about DRAWING each and every letter. Its about establishing a pacing and rhythmic motion as you write - giving you a consistency of shapes and letters, and spaces in between words and lines. It is highly relaxing and meditative. Like yoga for the hands.
