Modern Calligraphy 101
Focusing on modern calligraphy, we will cover the fundamentals that is loosely based on traditional copperplate style script where you use a sharp pointed nib rather than the flat nib used in most calligraphic writing. You will also learn important techniques on how to form letters by mastering strokes, write the lower case alphabet, the proper use of calligraphy tools and equipment, and tips and tricks on how to hone your skills.
