Brush Pen Calligraphy

Sun, Jan 27 | 10:00 am-1:00 pm |$125.00

UPDATE: This class is sold out.  If you would like to be placed on the waiting list, please call or email!

In this three hour class, we will explore the beautiful art of brush pen calligraphy.  Slightly different from pointed pen calligraphy where you dip a nib into ink, this style of calligraphy uses a single brush pen.

During the class you will learn the basic strokes, proper pen grip and the best tools to use. You’ll learn how to properly form each lowercase letter, review a traditional uppercase alphabet and be on your way to creating beautiful brush calligraphy works of art!

Students will take home their own brush marker set filled with a variety of brush markers and practice paper, plus a workbook that includes strokes, drills, two lowercase alphabet guides, one uppercase guide and tips on how to find your own calligraphy style. You will receive a personalized name tag and a zippered canvas pouch, perfect to store all your new pens.

All supplies are included and no prior experience (or nice handwriting) needed. For adults 21 and over.
