Since this is a dying art, it has been awhile since I've been commercially active, but I have taught classes before and have the supplies. I'd be most willing to share what I know with others who would be interested in keeping this art form alive!
I've been teaching Calligraphy for 5 years. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to start writing basic letters and as time goes on you'll be able to feel more comfortable with calligraphy, . I use specialized books and my experience; I have a plans for each level of my calligraphy lessons. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!
I have been practicing Calligraphy in a lot of western styles and Eastern from Copperplate to Blackletter to all sorts of Arabic Diwany, Naskh, Riq3a and A lot of Chinese and Japanese Brush styles. I can teach you the rules and provide you with ways to practice the letters. I also can teach you hand lettering which is different from Calligraphy in that the rules are much looser and it is very stylized, and is a lot more fun :)
Through the Calligraphy Academy, I offer a unique learning approach to calligraphy, designed to heighten your love of hand lettering, challenge you to improve your hand, and encourage you to practice. A combination of workshops, online coaching, and independent self guided programs are all designed to help you improve as a calligrapher.
The Introduction to Calligraphy course begins with a one day, three hour workshop.
In the workshop, I teach students how to use pointed pen calligraphy nibs, an oblique pen holder & real ink, to create gorgeous hand lettered designs. Students will learn how to draw the thick and thin lines that set the pointed pen apart from regular handwriting. The Introduction to Calligraphy course is not a class in “modern” or “contemporary” calligraphy. It is a basic Italic calligraphy course in which you will learn how to hold your pen, draw proper letter forms, and write in a timeless style.
Once the workshop is complete, you journey is just ...
One can expect to learn the basic elements of proper stylus form.
Correction of illegible penmanship.
Variations among and differences between the numerous styles of Calligraphy.
Basic supplies will be provided in addition to handouts.
