Join instructor Jacki Whisenant for an active examination of the written word, and the ways in which language is expressed visually on paper, from simple letterforms to elaborate calligraphic styles. We will work through different historical and modern approaches to writing, with both calligraphy pens and quill/nib pens as a fully immersive and mesmerizing study of words on paper. This class will practice elements of layout and ornamentation to bring depth and completion to a study of letterforms and how to both appreciate the historical practice and also give it your own flair. Supplies required.
