Calligraphy 112

  • Location: Gorton Community Center
    400 E. Illinois Road, Lake Forest, IL 60045

In this course you will focus on the proper techniques and posture for writing using a brush pen or dip pen and ink (student choice) starting with the basics, moving to letter formation with a focus on hairline and broad strokes, then working up to basic flourishing.

Advanced students will work on utilizing the dip pen as a tool for drawing and watercolor painting. You will culminate the course by producing a letter or written art for someone else using the skills of dip pen and ink calligraphy learned in the course and sharing it with them.

This course runs on Tuesdays, January 17 – March 21, 6:00pm – 7:30pm
