Calligraphy – in so many exciting new forms – is bursting into the 21st Century from the age of quills and Ye Olde Times.  Building on your understanding of basic cursive, Jessica will walk you through beginning modern brush writing by covering a brief history of calligraphy, supplies, the anatomy of a letter, and the basic strokes of the alphabet.  By the end of class, you will have begun to identify your own personal lettering style!

Materials List:

You will need two sizes (one smaller and one a bit bigger) of brush tipped pens:

-Smaller – Pentel Sign Touch brush pen OR  Tombow  Fudenosuke  (dark blue body)

-Bigger – Tombow Fudenosuke Brush Pen (Dual brush tipped black and gray) or Tombow Dual Brush Pen

Grid paper and Crayola type markers will be provided for use in class but if you’d like to buy some for practicing at home, Jessica recommends: Rhodia Grid Pads (or something similar) and Crayola broad tip marker

Jessica will provide printouts and handouts (practice alphabets, grids, resource (blogs) lists)
