Are you interested in learning calligraphy?
I'm very passionate about calligraphy, so if you're thinking about jumping into the craft, feel free to send me a message! If you're local to Rochester, NY, ask me about the Rochester Calligraphy and Penmanship Society.
I teach small group calligraphy classes on Spencerian Script at the Flower City Arts Center throughout the year. Follow the link to sign up.
- Fall Session: Tuesdays 9/18/18 - 10/9/18, 7pm-9pm. 4-week course.
Description: This uniquely American form of handwriting was the model used in schools and business colleges throughout the country from approximately 1850 to 1925. This course is a good introduction to pointed pen calligraphy, or for anyone with calligraphy experience looking to learn a new script.
Sometimes I participate in calligraphy demos at local libraries and art centers. I'll keep this page updated with any upcoming events.
- Saturday, October 13th, 10am - 1pm: Greece Public Library How-To Festival
Description: With a few other members of the Rochester Calligraphy and Penmanship Society, we will be demonstrating various calligraphy styles, and you'll have the chance to try your hand at calligraphy!
