October is an exciting month for A. Scribe.
After (or before) you check out Yayoi Kusama's 'All the Eternal Love I Have for the Pumpkins' at the Dallas Museum of Art, please come by my exhibition 'Epistolary Paper Quilts' on Sunday, October 1st from 1:30-3:30p at the Dallas Public Library on the 4th floor in the Lillian Bradshaw Gallery. The show will run through Sunday, October 29.
Epistolary Paper Quilts' is a celebration of the connection between calligraphy, and letter writing and journaling; as well as paper, ink and origami. Excerpts from five epistolary novels ('Dracula' by Bram Stoker, 'The Screwtape Letters' by CL Lewis, 'The Color Purple' by Alice Walker, 'Parable of Sower' by Octavia Butler, and 'Super Sad True Love Story' by Gary Shteyngart) are featured.
Also, I will be offering my online Italic Calligraphy course for the entire month of October (1st-31st). The first 100 students to sign up for any section will get the supplementary material (found on this site under products) for free and proceeds will go to Dallas Academy (a private school for children with learning differences) and schools in the southern sector of the Dallas Independent School District.
I will offer my Spencerian Method class at Oil and Cotton on Friday, October 13 and Friday, October 20 from 6:30-9p. Spencerian Script is a traditional American handwriting style. Experiment with a variety of inks and range of paper surfaces, and improve your own cursive handwriting skills with the Spencerian method in the process. Also, learn to make your own quill pen. Materials include dip pen nib with holder, quill pen, ink, and marker paper pad.
