Ornamental Penmanship Analysis 101


ORNAMENTAL PENMANSHIP ANALYSIS 101 – Yumie Tanaka

In this session, participants will focus on and learn key elements that make Ornamental Penmanship (OP) beautiful. We will use sample OP scripts from the IAMPETH archive room such as Louis Madarasz, E.A. Lupfer, C.P. Zaner, as well as other past masters, checking their slant, angle, rhythm, and other key factors that make their OP so pleasing to our eyes. Time permitted, students will apply the findings to their own OP, and the instructor will give feedback.
