Are you ready to learn the basic calligraphy font of Chancery Cursive (a branch of the italic font)? This is the most taught of all calligraphy fonts. Under the instruction of Joan Moore, whose love for calligraphy prompted her to share the art form and teach this “beautiful writing” to others, students will learn the basic strokes and the upper and lower case alphabet using a pointed pen and ink. This class is designed for beginner level calligraphy. No prior experience required. There will be a $25 supplies fee, which will be collected the first night of class.
