4 Week Copperplate Calligraphy Course - Beginner class

In this 4 week class, I will be teaching you copperplate calligraphy- a traditional, foundation style of script. We will meet weekly for a total of 4 evenings in May, from 630-830pm. Learn how to use your pointed pen tools, basic strokes, and create each lowercase and uppercase letter step by step!  We will also begin joining letters together, write words, and go over tips and tricks to help you avoid common mistakes. 

Each lesson will build on what was taught the week before. You will be given drills to do at home during the week to help reinforce the lesson and give you guided practice!

You many wonder, is this class for me?! If you have never held a pointed pen before, or have dabbled, but really want to learn how to improve your technique, this class is for you! It is a beginner course, and by the end you will know how to use the pointed pen, and create beautiful letters! Oh, and don't worry if you don't have pretty handwriting! This is TOTALLY DIFFERENT!! You CAN learn calligraphy, and I will be there to help you a long the way!
