About This Class

Calligraphy for beginners is a four class sequence for anyone who wants to start studying calligraphy.

This is the class number 4, and it is about Gothic Letters, we'll learn the basis of the Textura Quadrata, an alphabet from the 13th to 15th century. 

In this class, we will learn how to design each gothic letter based on a skeleton alphabet, a technique that makes the learning process easier. Also, we'll see how to write the words and how to create the composition of the works using the traditional way and the modern way.

So, come with us and let's study the gothic letters!
