Course Description:

Receive thorough instruction on calligraphy letterforms, and learn the contemplative aspects of calligraphy in the process. Moving the pen on the paper becomes a moving meditation, a stress-relieving resource for equanimity and harmony of body and mind. Design elements will be covered, working with various tools, the historical context of hand lettering and its influence on history and culture. Using the modern Pilot Parallel Pen, a broad-nib cartridge pen, is ideal in its user friendliness and ease of cleanup.
