Calligraphy Classes start again this Sunday, August 8, 2013 at the Discovery Center.
In this three-week class I am teaching the graceful Chancery Cursive Script (Cancellaresca Corsiva). This script was the standard hand in Italy around the 15th century. The main individuals responsible for this beautiful script were Ludovico degli Arrighi, Giouanniantonio Tagliente and Giovanbattista Palatino.
The first class the focus is using the broad edge marker and working our way through all of the minuscles (lower case letters). There is a ton of information to absorb in two hours but this will give you plenty to practice till we meet again following Sunday afternoon.
The second week will be covering the formation of the Majuscules letters and the numbers… and then we can create sentences!
The third and final week is reserved for creating a final project.
Sunday class will fill up fast so if you have an interest in learning Calligraphy… this is a fun and exciting way to learn!
Hope to see you Sunday afternoon at 3:00 at the Discovery Center!
