Calligraphy for Beginners 01:00 PM - 2:30 PM
Calligraphy for Beginners 8/13/2019 1:00 PM - 8/13/2019 2:30 PM
Calligraphy is the design and execution of lettering with a broad tip instrument, brush, or other writing instruments. A contemporary calligraphic practice can be defined as, "the art of giving form to signs in an expressive, harmonious, and skillful manner". Modern calligraphy ranges from functional inscriptions and designs to fine-art pieces where the letters may or may not be readable. Classical calligraphy differs from typography and non-classical hand lettering, though a calligrapher may practice both. Instructor asks for all participants to use monoline pens and calligraphy felt pens, not real ink. This will be much easier to manage, especially for those with little or no experience at all.
