Copperplate Calligraphy

  • Dates: Thursday, 10:00am-12:00pm, 10 Weeks
  • Tuition: $80
  • Instructor: Jack Harrison

This class is intended for beginners and advanced learners. Beginners will receive instruction in the tools and fundamental letterforms of this lovely cursive script, while advanced learners will have the opportunity to work on expanding their repertoire of letterforms and gaining a fuller appreciation of the grace and rhythmic flow of this script. Written with a pointed pen under the application of variable pressure, Copperplate flourished in the 18th and 19th centuries and is an ancestor of the “Roundhand” penmanship style taught in American schools well into the 20th century. While difficult to master, a steady hand and diligent practice will produce eye-catching results.
