  • Tuition: $80
  • Instructor: Jack Harrison

This is a beginning level class intended to introduce aspiring penmen and penwomen to the fundamentals of this graceful, cursive script. Written by means of a pointed pen and variable pressure, Copperplate flourished in the 17th and 18th centuries and is the 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.
