Focusing on modern calligraphy, we will cover the fundamentals that is loosely based on traditional copperplate style script where you use a sharp pointed nib rather than the flat nib used in most calligraphic writing. You will also learn important techniques on how to form letters by mastering strokes, write the lower-case alphabet and uppercase alphabet, the proper use of calligraphy tools and equipment, and tips and tricks on how to hone your skills.
