[ What You'll Learn ]
This is a 4-evening (total 8 hours) improver level workshop tailored for students who wish to take their calligraphy skills to the next level. You will learn the foundation and principle based on Engrosser's Script - a style of calligraphy that was widely developed and produced during the late 1800s and early 1900s in the U.S.A. Topic covers postures, pen grip, warm up exercises, drills, principle strokes, curvature and movement, nib manipulation and shading techniques.
We will focus on technical exercises to achieve consistency in sizes, forms and structure for both majuscules (capitals) and minuscules (lower cases).
Students will learn and practice along while our instructor - Kalo uses a documentary camera to project her writing onto the screen. Students will also receive personal feedback for their homework (optional) completed outside of the workshop hours.
