Instructor: Julie Wildman
This is Calligraphy Appreciation 101! In this class, participants will get an overview of the fascinating world of calligraphy, from historical manuscripts to the modern-day lettering arts. We will be inspired by different calligraphic hands found in the many works we’ll view, and then we’ll get to experiment with the tools that the masters’ used to create those works.
There will be plenty of demonstrations and one-on-one instruction. Students will get to try new tools, different hands, all sorts of beautiful papers, and various media. Our time together will be fun, informative and not at all threatening, and maybe even a bit messy!
Rather than producing a finished piece, students will come away with a variety of samples that will help them begin exploring ways to create new works on their own time.
This is a great class to whet your appetite for the world of letters! And that world is going to blow your mind!!!
