About this Class:
Learn the basics of this ancient art of “beautiful handwriting” while synchronizing your mind and body and cultivating inner calm. A single alphabet in its historical and contemporary form is used as the focus while different tools and techniques are used for practice. In each section, we work with a different alphabet: italic, roman capital, uncial, etc. The study and practice of the letter forms with the broad-edged pen is complemented by design exercises to explore color, texture, and rhythm. In a contemplative atmosphere, emphasis is placed on the balance between the discipline of precise form and the freedom of artistic expression.
Supplies: Students are responsible for their own minimal supplies, plus there is a $15 materials fee payable to the instructor that covers specific calligraphy supplies.
