(CANCELLED) Beginning Calligraphy – Italic Alphabet
April 25, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 7:00 pm on Monday, repeating until June 6, 2016
This class is to learn the Italic alphabet in Calligraphy. In the first 6 classes the student will learn the whole alphabet and proper spacing in a 3mm size pen nib. Students will be given sheets each week with the letters and some practice would be advised. There will be demonstrations and individual instruction.
“In addition to being a ceramicist I have studied calligraphy for many years, taking classes with well-known calligraphers and teaching for the Friends of Calligraphy including some that have been admitted to the Society of Scribes and Illuminators in the UK. I have been employed as a calligrapher for many years doing invitations, certificates, poems, envelopes etc. and have taught calligraphy in the Mill Valley, Tiburon and Novato Recreation Centers as well as the Tamalpais Adult classes.”
