Inspired by the beauty of nature and the graceful curves of the waves and rocks he found while exploring the shores of Lake Erie as a child, Platt Rogers Spencer set out to change the way people communicated with one another. Thus, the letterforms that make up Spencerian Script were born. Based upon the gentle shape of an oval, Spencerian Script is thought to be the most beautiful of all American lettering. Please join us as we explore the lovely script that our forefathers used to communicate as they travelled across the vast open spaces of the newly founded United States, and that is still used today from the White House in Washington DC to the much coveted announcements handed to the winners of the Academy Awards in Hollywood.
In this class we’ll cover all the basics of these beautiful letterforms. When done, you’ll have enough knowledge that, with practice, you can address wedding invitations, make beautiful cards for those you love, or simply WOW your friends with your lovely script expertise!
