Introduction to Brush Calligraphy
Brush calligraphy is a beautiful art form that can be used to add a personal touch to everything from greeting cards to event signage. In this three-hour workshop, students will learn the fundamentals of modern brush pen calligraphy, including how to hold a brush pen, how to form basic strokes and how to connect these strokes to form lowercase letters and words. Students will receive a set of brush pens and a workbook that they can take home to continue their practice. No experience is needed to join this workshop, just a willingness to have fun and try something new!
