About This Class

In this class I will show you the basic skills of the style of calligraphy I have named Romantic Calligraphy. It is based on Spencerian script, but I loosen things up a bit.  We will concentrate on lower case letters in this class, because they are the foundation for this style. I will show you how to add flourishes to your lower case letters to give some wow factor. This class is equally beneficial to the beginner calligrapher or the professional. 

The beginner may wish to use pencil for their practice and project, and the professional can use pointed pen and ink. You may also wish to start with pencil for the first time through the class and then give a try with pen and ink on the next time through.
