Instructor: Maryanne Grebenstein
This calligraphy course is appropriate for anyone new to calligraphy, or with some experience but in need of practice. Beginning with the basics of pen angle, letter slope, and letter proportion, students learn how to create the Italic alphabet using a broad-edged pen. Through practice and a few simple projects, students familiarize themselves with this lovely style of lettering. Perfect for poetry, invitations, place cards, greeting cards, and many other uses, the Italic hand is as relevant today as it was in 14th century Italy, where it originally developed.
Students are responsible for bringing some tools and supplies, please view the full list here.
