This class is designed for grades 3-12 ( Classes can be grouped by age)
Calligraphy is the art of producing elegant or beautiful handwriting. Though sometimes known only as a fancy wedding invitation, calligraphy is the recording of our human communication. In ancient Egypt, scribes were highly regarded artists often working directly with kings and pharoahs. Not everyone learned to read and write, and it often took up to five years to graduate from the special school.
In this class, students will also practice discipline to learn the calligraphy styles of Italic-Hand, Gothic, or German Black Letter, Roman Uncial, Chinese, as well as the beautiful illuminated letters that adorn Medieval manuscripts.
Come and learn Calligraphy using the traditional pen and India ink used throughout history!
