In this class we will cover warm-ups, how to hold your pen (we will be working with a classroom set of Pilot Parallel pens (1.5 mm)), the basic Italic lowercase, number, and uppercase to enhance your own handwriting, as well as a refresher about the parts of a letter, and ideas about what to put in the letter(s).
I will also bring a variety to of helpful and interesting calligraphy books.

Please be on the look out for the Italic Calligraphy online instructional course coming this spring. It will be a great complement to taking the class by encouraging practice, providing a refresher for information covered in class, and introducing material we cannot get to in class.
We have one more week left with the Irene Wellington Copy Book. I am still improving in speed. I also learned a new way to make 'Q'. We will wrap up next week with a quick sample of the skills I picked up.
