Calligraphy is a timeless and elegant art form. In this hands-on workshop, students will learn the foundations of a very popular lettering style developed in Italy around the Renaissance. The Italic hand, a graceful and legible hand, is very current today and used for many lettering applications. Beginning with pencil, students will gain an understanding of the underlying structure of the Italic hand before moving on to render the alphabet with a calligraphy pen using ink or gouache. Each session will build on the previous one in order for the student to become comfortable not only with their tools, materials, and lettering, but also to become confident in developing a calligraphic composition. Instruction includes guided practice and demonstration.
