Calligraphy means beautiful writing. Calligraphers use a number of different families of letter forms, or “hands.” One of these hands – copperplate – is traditionally used in botanical illustration to identify the subject of the illustration.
This two-session course introduces the basics of copperplate. Students learn how to make letterforms using the correct stroke sequence for lower and upper case letters with dip-pen in ink and watercolor paint. Proficiency will require practice beyond the scope of this course.
No prerequisite. $72 ($65 Members)
