Calligraphy Class...Part 1

Recommended Posts

So I took a calligraphy class. Firstly, I hope to improve my penmanship because every lady should be able to write a beautiful letter - SIKE! In all seriousness I would like to write a beautiful letter to Dean on the eve of our wedding. I don't think I'll be ready in time to address the wedding invites, but by next february I should be decent...The class was very interesting and the instructors were so knowledgeable about history and the history of writing. I am excited for the next classes!

 

Here are a few samples from my class....

 

I am pretty good at tracing....

Very nice, and you may be surprised how much you remember down the line. I took calligraphy when I was like 12 or something and I was able to use what I rememberd to address our invitations. And the cool thing about calligraphy pens is that you can totally fake it and regular writing come out looking pretty cool!

 

You're right about the "s"..its sucks bad, you have to do it in 2 strokes, right? Mine never looked like the teacher's sad.gif
