Calligraphy with Rebecca Wild, March 8-April 19
THURSDAYS, MARCH 8-APRIL 19, 1-4 PM
“Beautiful writing”, a simple definition of the ancient art form of calligraphy, is the study of the 26 letters on which our culture rests. In this 7-week class, we will focus on both lower and upper case Italics, as we learn basic lettering principles, technique and practical and creative uses for calligraphy. This is designed for beginners and those who need a refresher course. Bring a healthy dose of patience and concentration as you practice your ABC’s.

Linda O’Neill did an amazing two part program in January.
During the first half of the program she took us through the steps she used to produce her Bird and Words poster that she did for Carol DuBosch’s year long class.
The second part of the program was Akin, an informal calligraphic hand. We all had fun practicing it. It has many possible applications!
- monoline pen (fine line ballpoint pen is preferable) Linda likes the Pilot G-(0.38) todo Akim.
- Lined paper (i.e. notebook paper, or layout bond prelined before class.
- Supply fee: $2 for handouts
Our December 9th meeting was a lot of fun. We began with an “Immersion in Italics” led by Genaveve Starr. We then participated in a holiday potluck. The food was delicious! The highlight was letter cookie decorating.
At our October 13th meeting Susan Blenk led us in a review of Black Letters.
Here is a sampling of Botanicals that have been finished for our Botanical project.
