Virtual Foundational Hand

With Hermineh Miller
April 7 10am-12pm

This introductory course will introduce you to basic calligraphy skills: letter formation, pen scale, body position, pen hold, and breathing technique. We will explore practical uses for your newfound skill by making two projects, a personalized card, and a brief quotation using selected papers.

You will need two (2) devices connected to ZOOM when accessing the class. One device will need a camera facing you, the other device will face your writing surface and artwork. With this dual-camera setup, I will be able to address the class, demonstrate technique, view your work process, and provide instructions and feedback throughout the class. Students have found using their laptop or PC for the standard face view and a smartphone on a telescoping stand facing down to their work surface to be a convenient method.

A Google Drive link will be provided in your welcome material to access The Studio At Peonymoon where videos exclusive to students will be available for viewing at your own pace. These will demonstrate different skills, provide practice lessons, and introduce you to more ways to explore the art of Calligraphy. Within the link will be a folder for students to submit scanned work for review, feedback, and discussion with me and your fellow students.
