Calligraphy for Beginners: Intro to Pointed Pen

01:00 pm to 04:00 pm
FAR Center for Contemporary Arts

Instructor: Chelsea Schoch

Participants will learn the fundamental shapes of calligraphy in the script style of copperplate, using a dip pen and a flexible nib. All materials provided (valued at $40) are yours to keep and included in the workshop fee.

In this 3-hour afternoon class participants will build a foundational understanding of tools and techniques to build both the lowercase and uppercase alphabets, as well as a few flourishes, giving them the confidence to continue to study with a provided kit of materials and resources.

This course is designed for anyone looking for a fun, relaxed afternoon of exploring a truly enjoyable artistic medium. Open to those who have never picked up a calligraphy pen before, or more experienced students looking to add a new script to their toolkit. Make it even more memorable by signing up with a friend or two! Limited to 10 spots so reserve your space now!
