Beginning with pencil, students will gain an understanding of the underlying structure of Italic hand, before moving on to tackle the alphabet with a calligraphy pen using ink or gouache.

Students will learn how to be comfortable with their tools, materials, and lettering, and building confidence to develop a calligraphic composition.
