Intermediate Modern Calligraphy

This class is for the student who wants to expand on the concepts and techniques from our beginner-level class.

This 3-hour class covers:

  • How to use the oblique pen holder (with a different nib assortment)
  • Using gouache instead of calligraphy ink
  • More detail on connecting letters, forming words, and practicing lettering variations (with an emphasis on a looser, organic style of lettering)
  • Addressing envelopes
  • Drawing guidelines and working on dark paper
  • In-class project: personalized notecards
  • One-on-one feedback and individualized attention

All supplies and materials are included, and each class participant will receive a calligraphy kit to use in class in class and then take home. Intermediate-level calligraphy kits include: two pen holders, nibs, tube of gouache, ink mixing container, pencil, ruler, eraser, guidelines, practice alphabet, envelope guidelines template, practice paper, notecard paper, and envelopes
