Feb 7-March 28 - Getting Started with Calligraphy - Drawbridge Youth Series - Session A

from 35.00

Students aged 9 – 13 are welcome; no experience necessary. People around the world have taken joy in the creation of beautiful letterforms since the ages of antiquity. The form of “belles lettres” most recognizable today is cursive handwriting. This four-session course is especially designed to instruct youth in the basics of cursive, moving on to more developed calligraphy styles as each student is ready. As you get comfortable making letters with felt broad-nibbed pens, fountain pens, quills, and dip pens, you will also practice making finished pieces with short, light prose, original poetry, and quotes or words that inspire you. This course will be taught by the dynamic duo of Ben Yates (founder of Drawbridge) and Alice Armstrong. Both of them are long-time instructors of youth, as well as accomplished calligraphers.

Includes all materials. Drop-ins are welcome at a rate of $35 per class, with notification required by the previous Friday.
