Calligraphy Sampler • May 27

The Pointed Brush

Calligraphy Sampler - Pointed Brush

Date: Saturday May 27, 2017
Time: 10am - 12:30pm

Calligraphy is the fine art of decorative letter writing. It is an art that anyone can learn. Come and explore this beautiful art under the guidance of Margaret Van Diest.

$40 *all supplies included

The pointed brush (or pen) is a fairly recent calligraphic tool for Western calligraphers. There is no distinct slope or pen angle and letters may be bigger or smaller as each person may decide how precise they want to be. The pressure on the down slope will create thicker strokes while a light upward stroke makes the contrast with thinner lines. The lettering can be slanted or upright, cursive or not depending on individual preference.

Small class size is perfect for beginner level.

Sampler Classes are designed for anyone wanting to try out different mediums before investing in workshops and supplies.

We begin with a brief demo and discussion of various techniques. Participants will experiment and create their own masterpiece. If you want to try something new or have never painted before, or even if you already have a favorite medium, sampler classes are a great way to expand your artistic horizons.
