Calligraphy classes-italic

Calligraphy – The Italic Hand

This class will introduce students to the background and historic context of the italic letterforms which are based on 14th century lettering. They will learn the concepts of proportion and spacing and learn and practice the upper and lowercase letters. Weeks 1-3 will focus on the lowercase forms, with practice homework assigned and critiqued weekly. Weeks 4-6 will focus on the uppercase forms with more varied layout assignments which will also be critiqued. One class will also be devoted to materials – different types of pens, paper and inks- and students will experiment with those tools. 
We will also focus on envelope addressing, for those who wish to address wedding invitations.

I feel strongly that exposure to calligraphy is important not only to the general public, but also to the art world. The advent of computers has resulted in a deemphasis on the importance of one of the most personal facets of our being -our handwriting. It is sadly becoming a lost skill.
