Event Overview

Making beautiful Italic Script starts with getting the fundamentals down first. In this class, your instructor Dan Cotton, will show you how to make the proper letterforms. We will practice making the lowercase alphabet with a pencil first. Then we will move on to a broad-edged calligraphy pen; when the fun begins, your lettering will come to life. This class will set you up to learn more advance calligraphy styles, such as pointed brush and quill pen.

Handouts will be provided.
The class will be approximately 3 hours.

If you would like to get a head start by familiarizing yourself with the italic lowercase alphabet, I can email it to you before the class. You will need to email me at dcotton2@q.com, and I will email the attachments back to you.
