Pointed Brush Calligraphy

Sept. 20

12:30 – 2:30


Learn to use a pointed fiber-tipped brush to create beautiful thick-and-thin brush letters.  You will also learn to create “faux calligraphy” for larger work (like posters).  You will also learn to subtly shade your letters for special effect.

Introduction to Calligraphy is suggested as a pre-requisite, but not required.
