Beginning Italic Calligraphy
Dates: Thursday, 12:15-2:15pm, 10 Weeks Tuition: $70 Instructor: Valerie Bassett

Calligraphy is a beautiful and somewhat forgotten art form in this computer age. Hand lettering has become less popular, and many of us have lost the basic handwriting skills we learned in grammar school. We all know how special it is to receive a hand lettered envelope or invitation. This wonderful art form can be learned quickly with the proper skills and practice and enable you to create beautiful envelopes, verses and poems.

In this course students will learn the fundamentals of Italic Calligraphy, using worksheets to facilitate the technical process, letter spacing and word formation in order to create beautiful poems and envelopes. Students will be given homework, and individual help will be provided as needed.

Approximate cost of materials is $25.
