Book Arts: Foundational Calligraphy

Wednesdays, March 4 – 25 / 6 – 9 pm

This beautiful, clear, and simple style of calligraphic writing is based on a circular “o.” The analysis of these lovely rounded shapes is a great place for students to begin a calligraphy education or to improve and refine skills for those who have previously studied lettering. Students will artfully letter minuscule and majuscule forms with pen and ink on paper to illustrate words.
