Ann Miller teaches two online classes in calligraphy through the Academy of Art University in San Francisco. (These are online classes, not in-the-classroom-in-San-Francisco classes. They can be taken from anywhere in the world.)
Calligraphy and Letterform (GR106). Beginning/Survey Class. This 15-week course introduces the student to the entire history of marks, alphabets, and letterform from the first signs and symbols to the present. You will be guided by Ann Miller’s video demos and exemplars, slide shows, and individual design discussion, critique and review, as well as reading textbook material. You will practice all the major alphabets and produce 39 formal assignments that address the major issues of letter construction and page layout. It takes a lifetime to put together the pieces that result in satisfying calligraphic art, and this course will give you the broad foundation on which to base the development of your writing skills as well as your understanding of good design.
Advanced Calligraphy (GR236). This 15 week course is based on spacing and gaining expertise in organizing the visual field through stroke, sign, and layering manipulation. We use a wide variety of tools, methods, and media to develop personal skills and insight and to create a sense of confidence in the creative process. This course is influenced by André Gürtler's very effective instruction, working with drawn stroke elements, signs and letter-based marks. By concentrating on the core armature of the line, one is less influenced by the stylistic nature of the letter, and becomes closer to grasping the essence of the movement. This sense of the stroke as rhythm then joins with whatever one knows about each individual alphabet, giving more life to the forms. It's a good opportunity to push forward into the background and formation of letters as letters and also as design elements.
The beginning class is generally offered each semester, the advanced less frequently.
