Open to all skill levels, we are offering a class on Calligraphy working with the Pointed Pen. We will go from structural lettering based on Roman capitals to more expressive and fun letterforms and finishing off with scripts. This is probably the most diverse class I teach, but it also holds the widest range of lettering possibilities through learning this tool. The class will include some project oriented homework. This will be an intensive class, but also works as an introductory class learning the tool and trouble-shooting to find the best combination of pen, ink and paper for each student individually. All ages and skill levels are welcome.
Instructor: Manuel Murillo
