About the event
This special introductory class is specifically for teens and tweens who want to learn the art of writing with a pen and nib. The class was created in partnership with the City of Chamblee to offer continuing art education to their community.
In this modern calligraphy workshop, you'll learn the basic process of building letters in modern styles with guides, worksheets, and instruction. You'll also receive a beginner kit of calligraphy materials including a pen holder, nibs, ink, and of course, paper. During the last portion of the class, you'll have the opportunity to test your pen and ink on different types of paper and envelopes. You will even be able to take home folded cards to write cards to your loved ones using your new skills!
No prior calligraphy experience is necessary. We'll be covering how to use the materials as well as how to build letters, write words, and lay out a final piece of calligraphy.
