Worcester Art Museum Annual Fund-Donate Today! (DONATEFY13)
Calligraphy is defined as the art of beautiful writing. Using a broad-edge pen and ink, students will create graceful and elegant letters in Italic, a style of handwriting used in the 15th and 16th centuries. We will look to the Museum collection for inspiration and to reinforce lessons. This five week class will give Beginning students an overview of lowercase and simplified uppercase letters while engaging Continuing students with more in depth topics and an independent course of study. Beginners bring to the first class: a pad of graph paper, a pencil, and a calligraphic marker. The instructor will go over the materials list during the first class. Continuing students bring your usual supplies.
