Instructor: Maryanne Grebenstein
This class, designed for students with little or no experience in calligraphy, covers the necessary basics for learning to letter with a broad-edged pen. Using the Italic lettering style as the foundation, students learn about pen angle, pen scale, letter proportion and how to “line-up” the paper in to ensure a good layout.
