The secret is out- I'm super excited to be an instructor for Modern Calligraphy Summit 2.0! MCS 2.0 is a 2.5 week ONLINE course that runs from February 20th-March 8th, 2017. You might be wondering why I'm teaching a traditional script in a modern calligraphy course. It's okay- I would too! Well, I'm here because I want you to have a SOLID foundation in knowing how to write beautiful letters by looking at the rules and structure that is found in Copperplate calligraphy.
As much as I love the stylistic freedom that "modern calligraphy" offers, I'm also a firm believer in "knowing the rules so you can break them with intent". Calligraphy comes from the Greek word "kalligraphos" which means "a person who writes beautifully" and in my opinion, there's no script more elegant than Copperplate calligraphy! It is a versatile and popular script that is highly requested for weddings and events.
Are you ready for this?! Here's what I'll be covering in my class:
- My favorite tools/supplies to get started
- Drills to work on our finger and muscular movements
- Breakdown of each lowercase AND uppercase letter strokes
- Variations of flourished capital letters for an added WOW factor
- Extensive instructional handouts for you to print and study
- Special bonus video for my lefty friends!
- ...and more
I'm also honored to stand alongside 6 of my insanely talented and creative friends who will be covering ALL sorts of topics from brush lettering, digitizing your work, hand lettering layouts, writing on non-traditional surfaces, invitation design, to watercolor paintings. With lifetime access to videos, Q&As, and private Facebook group, we've got your back!
