Tap into your artistic and creative self and learn the art of modern calligraphy using a brush pen. The workshop begins with learning how to hold a brush pen followed by an introduction to the basic strokes and exercises to get you comfortable with using the pen. Students will then apply the foundational skills learned to write letter forms, connect words and write phrases and short quotes. By the end of the class you will be able to write the entire lower case alphabet in a modern calligraphy style. The workshop will culminate in students applying their knowledge to create a piece of word art – a quote that can be framed or given to someone as a gift.
This workshop is perfect for beginners, as well as those who want to learn another art form. No experience needed!
Materials Fee of $10 payable to instructor at beginning of workshop.
