February 10, 2016 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

Improve your handwriting with calligrapher and nature journal keeper JP Panter. Learn targeted techniques to improve the problem area that everyone shares. We will learn how to write in italic, a practical and flexible basic handwriting style which can be either printed or cursive. We will explore how different tools change the look and feel of what you write, as well as several ways to integrate writing with your sketches and illustrations. If we have time at the end of class we’ll talk a little about traditional calligraphy tools, and do some testing out of inks and pens.
No special tools or materials are required for this class. You will be given photocopy reference materials. Please bring your nature journals to take notes, and feel free to use any of your favorite pens and pencils. If you happen to have a “broad pen” or a “pointed pen” (the dip in an inkwell kind) and have questions about where to start with it, feel free to contact JP in advance.

This program is free with a $20 suggested donation. No experience necessary. All ages welcome. No registration required.
