Foundational and Variations:
Instructor: Reggie Ezell
February 27&28, 2021

This is considered by many to be the “foundation” for learning calligraphic let-terforms with the broad edge pen. Many a contemporary font are based on these lower case letters. This is great for entry level students or for those who want to revisit this style if they haven’t used it in a while. These will serve as a springboard in creating multiple contemporary var-iations, as well as a set of basic capitals.

Supply List:

either- Mitchell: #1, #1 1/2, #2, #2 ½, #3 (N04) (N07)
