Contemplative Calligraphy

This beginning-level class will include the Uncial hand and a couple of other calligraphy styles, using the Pilot Parallel Pen. Moving the pen on the paper becomes a moving meditation, a stress-relieving resource for equanimity and harmony of body and mind. Design elements will be covered, working with various tools, the historical context of hand lettering and its influence on history and culture. The cost is $190 for six 2-hour sessions.

The class will meet live on Zoom on Sunday mornings, from 10 a.m.to noon Chicago time (Central time zone). The first class is September 19, 2021.
