About This Class


Hi! I prepared this class to explain you the Basics of Handwriting in Italic Style!

We'll deconstruct the letters and build them up step by step, so to understand their structure.

Next we'll see how simple it is to connect those letters to obtain the cursive.

In the end we'll see what effect we'll obtain adding some slant.

For the final project you'll handwrite a song or a poem that has a meaning to you or something totally different, like a recipe!, and then send it to one of your classmates.
