To take this class, you need a microphone and camera enabled computer OR an IPad /smart tablet OR a smart phone (android or IOS) and a strong internet connection.

Using the simplest of tools, you will learn the basic shapes, lines and principles of calligraphy/beautiful writing. We will use felt tip markers, pencils and ball point pens to study the Italic hand. The emphasis will be on developing basic skills and understanding, so that you can incorporate calligraphy into your art projects. And, of course, you can always apply what you learn to improve your everyday handwriting!
